3:38 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 80 degrees, relative humidity 21 percent, barometer 28.70 inches, adjusted altitude 3,001 feet, track temperature 104 degrees.

DeJoria is going into her second final round with a runner-up to her credit. She had a win in Alcohol Funny Car too. Hight already has twenty-nine wins and sixteen runner-ups. DeJoria is 2 - 0 against Hight in prior events and this is the first time they have faced each other in a final round.

There is a huge Mosh Pit on the starting line, as the Kalitta crew goes wild!

Hight gets a small starting line advantage, but DeJoria was quickly on by and pulling away. Hight's Mustang kicks the tires hard after that and won't recover enough to give her a race. DeJoria is over a quarter second ahead at the 330 lights and just flies on down the track to score her best speed and ET of the weekend. An easy win for her first Funny Car Championship! Nice.

Alexis DeJoria's incremental times: 60ft-0.875 sec., 330ft-2.296, 660ft-3.263/269.08 mph.
