2:14 p.m. Just a short delay!

Beckman is 16 - 6 against DeJoria in prior events.

The left lane has been almost perfect in spoiling the runs of the fuelers today. DeJoria's Camry drops a cylinder and kicks the tires early.

Beckman leaves just 0.005 ahead of DeJoria, but thunders right on down the track for the easy win and lane choice in the final round.

Jack Beckman's incremental times: 60ft-0.860 sec., 330ft-2.214, 660ft-3.114/285.59 mph.
