This was a costly win for Zampese. There was a big puff of smoke in the lights, then the dragster bounced off the wall in the shutdown area, causing a lot of front-end damage. He is reported to be out of the car and "okay." If the car can be repaired, he would face Wilson in the quarterfinals, but from here that appears unlikely. There is no oil on the track.
