Sorokin gets a big head start at the green and starts to pull steadily ahead going down the track. Right after the 1000 foot lights, the little Chevy starts to fail and Williamson is just able to storm on by for the win. There is a big blower BANG from his car right in the lights and a wall of smoke from the engine. Lots of oil after the finish line. Exciting finish!
