In the non-points, all-run Junior Dragster class, Meade and his 2005 Motivational dragster raced fellow Junior Dragster 2 driver Makenna Brown and her 2005 Spitzer entry. Brown, from Powell, Ohio had the edge off the line, but she took too much stripe at the finish line and broke out. Meade ran a 8.929 on his 8.90 dial in to win the race over the 9.005 on a 9.03 for Brown.
