3:44 PM This one is just the way it's scripted as the #1 and #2 qualifiers meet in the final round. Payne has lane choice and stays in the left lane. Payne pays Austin back for Austin's win over him a week ago at Ennis Texas. The start was even and the numbers show that they swapped the lead a couple of times before the stripe. In the end it was payne in a close victory. Margin of victory = 0.035 seconds (approximately 12 feet).
