Chesterman was out of the gate first and had violent tire shake with the car completely sideways around the 330-foot, but he keep his foot in it. Moats was on a good looking pass until just past half track and that is when his engine let go with a big flash of flame. Looks like he threw out the rods and a lot of other stuff on the track.
