It is 75 degrees and the humidity is 50% and the barometer is 30.02 inches under sunny skies. Both cars were in the water and then at the last minute they switched lanes and behind him in the lanes Force switches lanes, too. The lane swap did not pay off for Tony as he went up in smoke as soon as he hit the throttle. He pedaled it once, twice and never did get it to hook up. Frank with the conservative set up goes straight down the groove and into the final.
