The Odessa, Texas native won for the first-time this season. His last win came in Epping, New Hampshire at New England Dragway on July 8, 2018.

Before this final round appearance, both McGaha and Laughlin had two wins against each other. However, this was the first-time that they faced each other in the final round.

McGaha had the advantage off of the starting line. He never trailed, as he won by 0.0681 seconds, or 21 feet.

This is McGaha’s eighth career Wally.
