4:29 PM The top four qualifiers square off in the semifinals today - a rarity. Bazemore loses traction almost immediately, while TJ goes to his fourth final round in a row and becomes the third driver ever to run 320 mph in a Funny Car with his career-best speed, in a Funny Car or Top Fuel dragster.
  
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   1 John Force          4.844 317.12  Q    4 Ron Capps           4.908 295.76

 *****WINNER***** 0.500  4.824 309.27  E3                  0.509  4.873 310.55
This was a great drag race, the two cars leaving together and then both going right down the middle of the lane, side-by-side, Force winning by margin of victory = 0.058 seconds (approximately 26 feet) in the quickest side-by-side race ever. Force will have lane choice against TJ in the final round.
