Williams qualified at the top of the ladder and Van Hauen at the bottom. They meet in the final round.

William is away first and never headed from start to finish on his best run of the weekend. He is the Top Alcohol Funny Car Champion.

Van Hauen had a good leave and then had the back end wash out near the 330 lights and drive towards the center line. He lifts and cranks the wheel hard to stay in his lane, but Williams is long gone. He gives it up as a lost cause.

Kirk Williams' incremental times: 60ft-0.955 sec., 330ft-2.523, 660ft-3.769/197.91 mph, 1,000ft-4.834.
