         S/R Index: 6.40 (+/-): 93.599             S/R Index: 6.40 (+/-):  0.182
According to reports from top-end officials, a rear tire on Bicknell's car failed as he neared the finish line and he clipped the finish-line timing reflector. His 23-T roadster then spun around and made contact with the wall before stopping near the quarter-mile finish line. The contact with the timing reflector disqualified Bicknell's run, making Smith the winner.

Slack's car was in the groove, but made a couple wiggles after passing the 330-foot marker, then made a hard move to the left.

Race officials inspected the track and did not find any fluids or other reasons for the loss of traction, but rain is not far away and the humidity is high. They ran the tractor tire drag several times, in both lanes, as a precaution, before firing the next pair of cars.
