Morgan went red and may have thrown an easy win away because Nobile slowed almost immediately and coasted down the track.

E2                   0.037  6.611 210.05     ****WINNER****  0.019  6.596 210.11

Anderson holds a 19-16 edge against Connolly, but they are 5-5- in prior round two matchups.

Connolly also made a last-minute lane swap, but his worked out better than Line's. He had two hundredths in hand at the tree and steadily stretched that for a surprisingly big win margin.

AJ is 6-0 against Humphrey in prior events, 3-0 in round two.

This was all Johnson, Humphrey late and unable to match Johnson's pace. Johnson won easily and was quick enough to earn lane choice against Connolly in the semifinals.
