Kurth had about a half-second head start and that was enough for him to be well clear when Thrift launched. Something, possibly liquid under one rear tire, sent Thrift's car into a hard left turn, barely clearing the 60-foot marker. He managed to get the car stopped before hitting the left wall and Kurth had already cleared that part of the track.
