6:04 PM Rector just plain undressed Thomas on the starting line. By the time Thomas got under way, Rector was almost past the tree. Thomas gave it a game try, but Rector had him covered at both ends of the track and won by almost 50 feet.

Two great lights here, but Brand had the performance edge after the 60-foot marker and won by more than a car length, quick enough to also earn lane choice against Rector in the final round.
