Antron Brown won the Top Fuel division, Jimmy Alund topped the Pro Stock field to become the first European winner in the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, and Andrew Hines won in Pro Stock Motorcycle in the event that features racing in four lanes instead of the traditional two.

Hight, also the 2012 Four-Wide winner and the Charlotte winner last fall, had a winning pass of 4.074 seconds at 311.34 mph in his John Force Racing Ford Mustang. Hight also won this season in the Gatornationals and extended his lead to 53 points over Force.

''This has been a great weekend,'' Hight said. ''We love coming to zMAX Dragway. What a better place to bring potential sponsors than this facility. John and I getting to the final made it that much more special. It's my fourth final in a row and we've only missed two rounds in Pomona to start the season.''

Brown won with a 3.800 at 317.42, beating Shawn Langdon, J.R. Todd and Doug Kalitta.

Alund, from Sweden, won in his first final appearance. Substituting for Greg Anderson, Alund had a 6.562 at 211.59 in a Chevy Camaro to edge Shane Gray, Vincent Nobile and Erica Enders-Stevens.

Hines won for the second straight race in Charlotte with a 6.859 at 196.10 on a Harley-Davidson. He beat Eddie Krawiec, John Hall and Scotty Pollacheck.
