DeSantis takes a nice lead at the start but didn't have enough bike to hold off the hard charging Sampey. Angelle will take her Buell into the next round, and with this round victory earns more of those crucial points.

    1 Matt Smith                            235 Hector Arana                 
E2                   0.031  7.032 188.91     ****WINNER****  0.014  7.032 191.43

We have a staging duel, Smith goes in first, Arana follows. Arana gets a big edge at the start, and he never looked back as Smith didn't have enough to run him down, they real identical ETs that will go down in the record books as a hole shot win. Arana will have lane choice over Johnson next round.
