Brown defeated Brittany Force in the Top Fuel final and collected his 26th victory in the category.

Doug Kalitta leads Top Fuel drivers with 191 points. Khalid alBalooshi is next with 165.

Johnson beat V. Gaines in Pro Stock. Gaines has advanced to the finals in each of the first two events this season. Johnson’s victory is his 21st career win. Gaines leads the Pro Stock standings with 191 points. Jason Line has 180 in second place.
