Good race, Dobbins away first and quick enough to hold off Holbrook on the top end. Dobbins was quicker for the first half of the track, but Holbrook had the power to close the gap on the top end. 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.
