Brown leads the Top Fuel category with two wins and trials points leader Doug Kalitta by 25 markers.

Jimmy Alund drove to his first career victory in his second NHRA Four-Wide Nationals appearance. The Swede ran a 6.562 pass at 211.59 in his Summit Racing Chevy Camaro, only the fourth non-American winner in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.

Erica Enders-Stevens raced in the final grouping and was able to maintain her points lead in the factory hot-rod category.

Matt Hines, a three-time Pro Stock Motorcycle world champ won his second straight race in Charlotte with a 6.859 run at 196.10 over Eddie Krawiec, John Hall and Scotty Pollacheck.
