 3726 Pascal Lecompte                      3016 Rick Forish                  
E1                   0.021  7.147 184.50     ****WINNER****  0.011  6.923 189.66

Forish wins a close race, the margin of victory approximately 20 inches, then he lost control of his car past the finish line. The word from the top end is, he is okay, but his car is not. This will likely give Elliott a bye run in round two.

Brown jumps the gun and Coughlin advances to the semi's where he'll face Jamison.
