3:37 p.m. Litton had the early lead, but Foley took command before half track and held on for the win, but he appeared to drop a cylinder on the top end and had a bit of an engine fire in the shutdown area. Doug Foley's incremental margins (negative if behind): 60ft(-0.046), 330 ft(-0.002), 660ft(0.026), 1,000ft(0.288). MOV: 0.0256 seconds (approximately 12 feet).

    9 Rick Cooper                             1 Clay Millican                
E2                   0.059  5.151 216.65     ****WINNER****  0.063  4.695 305.63
 Prior rounds:
E1    (T PATON     ) 0.068  5.127 263.10      (L ALLISON   ) 0.082  4.540 325.69
 Qualified:             #7  5.237 230.96                        #6  5.086 203.40
Millican was really hauling once again, but pedaled about 300 feet out to get through tire shake and then appeared to lose a head gasket in the lights. Even so, he will have lane choice against Foley in the final round. Cooper did the smart thing, just running his race.
