Brian Hough won the Top Alcohol Funny Car final round when Chris Marshall red-lighted in the final round but the real drama came in the semifinals where the world championship was clinched in Doug Gordon’s favor. Gordon, the incoming point leader, suffered a rare first round loss but won the title from the sidelines when reigning and two-time champ Sean Bellemeur lost in the semifinals. Bellemeur never got to race Marshall when his Hussey Performance Camaro wouldn’t fire against Marshall, making Gordon the champ. For Hough’s part, he ran a 5.46 in his round one win against Mark Billington and then topped Jay Payne in the quarterfinals with a 5.49.
