Miller gets the starting line advantage, but Martin chases him down. apparently Martin got on the brakes hard at the finish line and the car went out of control. The word from the top end is Martin is out of the car and walking around. After some investigation and discussion it was ruled Martin had excessive braking and was DQ'ed and Miller reinstated in eliminations.
