Two great lights just 0.002 difference at the green.

Reid looks to have dumped hard to take the win, as Kile breaks out. The car gets loose right after the lights and smakes the right guard rail. The car shoots across the track and slides into the left hand guard rail and comes to a stop. He is out of the car quickly and OK.
