Jack Beckman beat his teammate Tommy Johnson Jr. by just .007-second on a holeshot to advance to the semifinals for the second time this season.

Beckman’s 3.898 beat Johnson’s 3.892 thanks to a .063 to 069 reaction-time advantage. Low qualifier Robert Hight advanced with a 3.870 – his third straight run within .002-second of on another – and will face his boss John Force, who survived a scary race with Matt Hagan when his Peak Camaro lost power just past halftrack; fortunately for him, Hagan’s Mopar had smoked the tires at the green. Tim Wilkerson, who had to pedal his way to victory in round one, bounced back with a 3.872 to reach his first semifinal since last year’s Charlotte event.

Semifinal pairings (lane choice first): Robert Hight vs. John Force; Tim Wilkerson vs. Jack Beckman
