The win extends Pompoino's 2013 round record to 14-0.

Reichert defeated Kanick
Reichert, who is a 5-time national champion in the alcohol dragster class, beat Matthew Cummings in round 1, No. 1 qualifier Randy Meyer in the second round and recent event winner Rich McPhillips in round three to advance to the final. Rishi Kanick, in his first ever national event, took out John Finke, Marty Thacker, and Chris Demke for a chance at the title but the dream ended when Kanick left before the starting tree was activated giving Reichert the win and the trophy. Reichert ran it out to a 5.301 at 262.90.

Pomponio defeated Brand

Rowe faced off with Michael Kubiak as both racers were looking for their first national win. Rowe was off the line first and held on for the win in his '90 Camaro.
