Top Fuel No. 1 qualifier, but wasn’t able to earn the Last Man Standing bonus

up crossing the finish line during the final pass of the night before Litton.
Cannon ended up No. 2, followed by Litton teammate Jeff O’Neill, Todd Paton,
Bobby Lagana Jr. and points leader T.J. Zizzo. Mitch King and Kevin Jones ended
up seventh and eighth. Terry McMillen, who won the last Knoll Gas Nitro Jam
