Based on the first round of eliminations, Allen had a good shot at winning the event, but that ended here when something triggered his parachutes and they deployed as he prepared to start the car. The crew scrambled, but there was no way they could repack the chutes and McPhillips got a fre pass to the finals. He will have lane choice against Bourke in the finals.
