6:00 p.m. Connolly got the win light, McRobie getting to the finish line first and breaking out. Then McRobie's car made a hard left turn, hitting the left wall hard. The car bounced off, coming back across the track and hitting the right wall before stopping well into the shutdown area. The safety crew removed McRobie from the car and he was transported by ambulance to Licking Memorial Hospital, in Newark, for treatment. If we get any word on his condition before the end of the event, we will pass it along.

Connolly's win gives him a bye to the semifinals..
