It was Dallas Glenn, Mason McGaha, Crisitan Cuadra, and Erica Enders shoulder-to-shoulder for the Finals in Pro Stock. But Enders cut a 0.019 light and raced to a 6.668-second, 206.32 mph pass to hold off a hard-charging Cuadra and his 6.702/196.13 run—though it’s worth pointing out that Cuadra suffered a mechanical issue late in the run that may have worked in Enders’ favor.
