3:36 PM Thomas was trying to be only the second sixteenth qualifier ever to win an event. Smith was trying to keep up his reputation as king of the staging duels. Thomas went in first, Smith got the light, and then Thomas couldn't run the numbers and Smith could. He's still the king of staging duels.

These two are known for their reaction times and neither wanted to go in first. Jeg finally went in, then Martino. Martino got the holeshot against a good reaction time and then held on to win by a margin of victory = 0.006 seconds (approximately 21 inches), also earning lane choice against Smith in the final round.
