3:56 PM Callaway slapped a huge holeshot on Reichert, but his engine let go in a flash of flame at half track and Reichert stormed by for an easy win. The fireball was so big that the flames were sucked forward, into the cockpit, but Callaway was not injured - the NHRA safety requirements do their job once again.
