In Street Eliminator, it took four rounds of competition to reach the Final between Steve Quickel and Brian Hampton. In looking at the result sheets, it wasn't an easy trip for either driver. In the first round, Steve won a double red light foul, when his competitor Carla Reynolds, went red first. Brian faced some tough competition before getting a bye into the Final. There, Steve was quicker off the line, .105/.113 and ran closer to his dial-in to take the win, 12.50/12.624-17.59/17.776.
In the Box sub-class, it took seven rounds to reach the Finals between Dion Degnitz and Charlie Hamma, both in dragsters. Both had fantastic reaction times all day with Charlie having a perfect light (.000) in the second round. Through the seven rounds to reach the Final they had a combined ten .00_ lights! In the Final, Charlie was just a little too quick and went red -.007 to Dion's .013 giving the win to Dion. This put the door car (No-Box) up against the Box dragster.
In the Final, Final, Grant Zimmerman, driving the slower car, launched first with a .018 light to Dion's .015 reaction time. At the stripe, Grant ran his number with a one to take the win, 6.47/6.471. Dion was 5.38/5.397. It was a great race!
