Dobbins' Margins: 60ft(0.033), 330 ft(0.040), 660ft(0.031), 1,000ft(0.021). MOV: 0.0132 seconds (approximately 4 feet).

Miller, by a holeshot - a small holeshot. Montecalvo was reeling him in, but ran out of racetrack. Miller's margins: 60ft(0.030), 330 ft(0.020), 660ft(0.013), 1,000ft(0.008). MOV: 0.0028 seconds (approximately 10 inches). Miller advances and will have lane choice over Dobbins in the semifinals - by just 0.005 seconds - should be another great drag race.
