5:40 p.m. Jirka Kaplan has a 0.21 CIC penalty; Chuck Smithfield has no CIC penalty. Smithfield's worst light so far was a 0.034 and that's very goiod driving in Comp Eliminator. This is the second final round ever for 63-year-old Smithfield, who has said he's retiring after this season.

Kaplan had a great light, Smithfield had his worst, but Smithfield used up all the index he'd saved all weekend to get the win light. Chuck Smithfield's MOV: 0.0412 seconds (approximately 12 feet). Congratulations on a great retirement present.
