Schumacher is 20 - 2 against Millican in prior events and Schumacher is 1 - 0 against Millican in prior final rounds. Schumacher with the starting line advantage and then Millican had the lead at 330 feet and then started to haze the tires just before half track. Schumacher's engine then let go with a huge explosion, but still gets the win. Schumacher collects his third win of the season and his 72nd career win. The word from the top end is there is oil in Schumacher's lane and that will cost him 10 points. this is the third time this year the DSR teams have doubled up at an event and the 37th time since 2003 and the Tony has been apart of 21 of those double up wins.
