Well, that was wild!! It looked like doom for Francev when the parachute came out right about half track. His day got much better, as Denhartog's went from glee to frown, when the engine let go big time. Francev drives on through the lights with the chute deployed to get the win!

The trucks are rolling for a major clean up.
