While he prepares for his nitro Funny Car debut in Gainesville, reigning and two-time Top Alcohol Funny Car national champ Jonnie Lindberg made a guest appearance behind the wheel of Jay Payne’s Peak Camaro and nearly pulled off a victory. Lindberg reached the final round, where he fouled by two-thousandths, allowing Shane Westerfield to claim his fifth national event title. Although he slowed against Lindberg, Westerfield made three straight 5.4-second runs leading up to the final, including a best of 5.457 in the opening round. With the victory, Westerfield has five wins in 11 final rounds in Top Alcohol Funny Car.
