We have a brief delay to wait for Farrell, as he is still working on a "double up", also running in Super Stock. Mike Farrell has no CIC penalty; Mike DePalma has a 0.14 CIC penalty.

2:46 p.m. DePalma gets away second and puts the power down to chase down a flying Farrell. Sometimes too much power is a bad thing and the car gets way loose and drives across the center time. That's a big DQ and Farrell gets the easy win and a trip to the final round.
