After the race concluded on Saturday night, the track was still open for some grudge racing. Here, Lombard, Illinois' Ross Lentin squared off against Mesa, Arizona's Rob Parsons. The two were to run against each other in Pro Lightning eliminations but didn't get the chance because of the single-file runs that the class ended up running. Parsons thought he could make up the e.t. deficit with a good reaction time, but in the late-night grudge match, Lentin's nitrous-sniffing rig ran an all-time best of 9.82 at 134 mph to Parson's 10.43. Ultimately, it was a gap too big to cover at the stripe.
