Jackie Fricke left three-hundredths ahead of Severance in the Top Alcohol Dragster final, and it was enough to secure a fourth national event title, 5.319 to 5.286. Before the final, Fricke’s Doosan/Finke Equipment dragster had been solidly in the 5.2s in wins against Johnny Ahten, Garrett Bateman, and Shawn Cowie. Severance, the defending event champion, also rode a string of 5.2s to the final, including a best of 5.222 in his quarterfinal win against Chris Demke.
