Young had a slight advantage on the starting line, with a reaction time of .086 seconds, compared
to Gardiner's .091 seconds.

The Camaro, he said, "was flawless. This car is always a great piece."
Young thanked Joel Warren and Lucas Oil, as well as Warren Race Engines, Joel Warren, "my Mom, my
Dad, my brother, my girlfriend and the good Lord above."
