Seven IHRA championships between them, we've seen these two face off in numerous final rounds, it's always a titanic battle. Atchison won this one at both ends of the track, Thomas later off the line, then using up more of his lane to get to the other end. That's his third event win in as many final rounds this year, while Thomas falls to one win in two finals.
