Clint Thompson
0.063 | 3.743 | 197.68
Both drivers ran career-bests in qualifying here, but Thompson needed a big holeshot or something strange to have a chance here. He got a break, maybe -after waiting aptiently through the entire oil cleanup, Pesz's car refused to fire. The crew got it to kick over at the last minute and he made a very short burnout, stopping short of the starting line, but when the light went green, Pesz's car went silent again, rolling about 50 feet. Thompson gets the lucky win, but won't have lane choice against Tindle in round two.
