Steven Kent has a 0.02 CIC penalty; Alan Ellis has a 0.01 CIC penalty.

Kent's day goes from bad to worse, as he red lights, gets loose down track, and then flies across the lane and into the right lane wall. The Vette goes upside down and slides to a stop in the middle of the lane.

Ellis was taking it easy and almost got involved. He will race Barone later.
