5:02 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 82 degrees, relative humidity 20 percent, barometer 28.02 inches, adjusted altitude 4,066 feet, track temperature 96 degrees.

With this tough field, we come down to the final round with the #7 and #8 qualifiers. Only 0.011 difference in ET's. One blown alcohol and one injected fuel.

Well, it's ugly, but Martin gets the win, as St.Arnaud pushes too much over his 0.005 RT from last round and is -0.016 red.

Martin has his own problems, as the car gets loose at the shift and he has to pedal. He's right back after it and gets to the finish line under power.

Ray Martin's incremental times: 60ft-0.948 sec., 330ft-2.521, 660ft-3.850/189.10 mph, 1,000ft-4.948.
