Sleger made a burnout, then his car was pushed away from the starting line and the track crew went to work with thinner and mops and rags. The trail wasn't wide, but it was long and the following pair of dragsters swapped lanes after the cleanup.

The cleanup was a good one because Cadle won in the just-cleaned lane. Chris Cadle's MOV: Took the stripe by 0.0220 seconds (approximately 6 feet), opponent broke out. Of course, a 0.005 light didn't hurt anything.

Looks like Strefling staged with a broken race car, just in case Vandersloot went red. Nope.
