Hight and Force had raced each other 25 times before this race, with Hight winning 14 of those meetings. This is the first time they have raced each other this season. Force has won this race six times, with his most recent win coming in 2001. Hight won here last year and was was runner up in 2006.

Force came off the starting line just a bit quicker than Hight. Hight's car had some tire shake off the starting line. Hight got off the throttle, got back on, got back off, then back on, then clicked it off. Force took his Mustang down the lane to take the win and earn lane choice over Lesenko in the next round.
