4:06 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 83 degrees, relative humidity 19 percent, barometer 28.82 inches, adjusted altitude 3,227 feet, track temperature 98 degrees.

Savoie and Salinas have each won 1 times against the other in prior events and this is the first time they have faced each other in a final round.

If Salinas wins: Hines is the 2019 Champion. If Savoie wins: He is the the 2019 Champion.

Savoie's bike dies after the burnout and sounds terrible when they restart it. He goes into the staging lights and just rolls through the lights and stops on the green.

Salinas takes her first National Event win with ease and gives the 2019 PSB Championship to Andrew Hines!

Huge UPSET!

Jianna Salinas' incremental times: 60ft-1.092 sec., 330ft-3.139, 660ft-4.789/149.73 mph, 1,000ft-6.224.
