Warren will be trying to avenge his lost to Martino from the last race. They both take their time staging, finally Warren goes in Martino still takes his time. He finally goes in, Warren welds him on the tree. Martino makes a violent move toward the centerline, and does great job driving it, but finally aborts it.
