Bartone won the battle of the tree in the A Fuel, car. He left first and pulls away all the way to the finish line. Copeland wasn't that far behind but about 100 feet off the line his racers hazed the tires hard and the event is over for him.

Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   1 Morgan Lucas        5.315 261.93  Q   13 Cliff Bozzelli      5.499 255.15
   (M Hentges   ) 0.460  5.378 254.57  E1   (A Bradshaw  ) 0.443  5.484 257.28
   (S Federlin  ) 0.456  5.320 267.16  E2   (J Haley     ) 0.486  5.515 252.66
 *****WINNER***** 0.477  5.287 266.16  E3                  0.464  5.527 256.89

Just before the hit Lucas's ride almost sounded like it back fired. That would have been difficult if the car had a blower but it didn't seem to bother the A fuel setup. Bozzelli was game in the right lane but just didn't have enough for the Darien and Meadows training car. Lucas earned his keep on that pass. He earned lane choice over Bartone in the final.
