4:45 PM Manzo had an easy one in the last round and saved the car. Bartone ran all out to get lane choice. Now we see if it pays off. Both drivers have so many wins the list is off the screen. And Manzo is still having a perfect season. This win required a holeshot and that is just what he did. Bartone makes the run of the weekend but it still is only good for the runner spot. Margin of victory = 0.014 seconds (approximately 5 feet). After the run we hear that Manzo had no oil pressure at the line and almost shut the car off. Bet he's glad he didn't.
