3:02 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 84 degrees, relative humidity 28 percent, barometer 29.17 inches, adjusted altitude 2,727 feet.

Head gets a big starting line advantage, but the AJPE motor is too strong for the track and the tires are quickly up in smoke. He pumps it several times and tries to chase down a slowing Lewis, but runs out of track. The blower then goes bang in the lights to seal his doom.

Lewis gets lucky and will give up lane choice to Densham in the final round.
