Looks like the old AA/FA wars! Two blown Bantams with big winds to the line.

...and just like the old days, Leonard's big lead is for naught, as the car gets loose way down track and bounces off the wall. He still runs 7.374 at 135.04 MPH in the lights.

Veahy gets a gift win.

2:34 p.m. Back to racing after a little dusting and cleaning.

Brewster gets a small advantage off the line, but it's all Aines after that for a decisive win. He will face Veahy next round.
