Robert Hight and Matt Hagan, who have combined to win four of the last ten NHRA Mello Yello Funny Car championships, will meet to decide the Mopar Express Lane NHRA SpringNationals championship.
Hight, the 2009 and 2017 champ, reached the final by beating his boss, John Force in a side-by-side thriller, 3.924 to 3.932. Hight has now beaten Force the last four times they have raced, a feat that no one else has ever been able to achieve.
Hagan's win against his DSR teammate Ron Capps was not as pretty, but he's not about to complain. Both drivers smoked the tires, but Hagan's special edition chrome Pennzoil Dodge was further downtrack and he was able to cruise to a 4.613 for the win. Hagan has already won once this year in Phoenix.
