It's brother vs brother Tony is 21 - 10 against Cruz in prior events. They both have great lights but Cruz gets out on Tony, and Tony's car starts to shake and starts to haze the tires and he lifts, from there Cruz just drives away. Cruz will face off with Beckman trying to win his first race of the year.
