Charles White fell to Pete in the semis when he ran into some mechanical issues and Rob Forbes broke out against Rick in their semifinal match.
Steve Searles got the win light glowing in his lane when Brian Mahler left the red light glowing on his side of the tree, but Steve would have been tough to beat as he drove to a .031-initiated, 6.175 at 111.18 mph on his 6.17 dial-in for the win. Brian cut a heart-breaking -.008 reaction time foul and threw away a potential winning 6.927 at 97.90 mph on his 6.91 dial-in, but had to settle for the runner-up finish.

Jeff dialed his Ford in at a 7.34 and drove it out to a 7.380 at 91.55 mph in his runner-up effort. Mr. Pip was vulnerable on the line with his .131 reaction, but with the win sealed, he drove his "electrocket" Tesla to a 7.006 at 97.71 mph on his 7.10 dial-in to secure yet another winner circle photo op.

Kevin was on point with his 6.09 dial-in and posted an awesome 6.097 at 110.40 mph run to score his second Bike/Sled Trophy win of the season.

5.50 Limited Street
The Rowdy Racing 5.50 Index Limited Street final between Dave Kelly and Fred Fisching got off to a good start with Dave grabbing a .043 to .086 reaction time advantage, but Fred ran into some problems and got out of the throttle handing the win over to Dave. Mr. Kelly drove his '79 Camaro to solid 5.575 at 126.12 mph to score another 5.50 win. Dave parked Matt Huyck in the semis on the strength of a .004 reaction time and an off-the-throttle 5.619 winning pass.
