6:26 p.m. These two were just three thousandths apart in round one, so this promised to be a close race and it was as expected. Snider had the better light, but Leggett had the early lead and from 330 feet to the stripe they were welded together.

Terry Leggett's incremental margins (negative if behind): 60ft(-0.026), 330 ft(0.009). MOV: 0.0092 seconds (approximately 3 feet).

A Hossler win here will clinch the championship, but D'Aprile has a slim chance to take that away from him.

Hossler left nothing to chance, cutting the tree down and running low ET of eliminations to clinch the 2013 championship.
