What looked like an engine failure in qualifying was actually a dipstick that blew out of the engine, spraying oil on the hot parts.

Vergotz was late, but the race was a pedaling contest, both with tire shake. Riesterer managed to keep the car in his lane and off the wall for the win, but he won't have lane choice against Weatherford in round two.
