   43 Rickie Smith                         2792 Jamie Hancock                
E1                   2.539 13.820   NS       ****WINNER****  0.019  4.096 180.09

This was strange - the light went green and Smith's car did not move, then he opened the door and was pushed away. The word from the launch pad is that Smith broke something in the engine on the burnout, so he staged a broken car to see if Hancock would go red.

Flamholc went red, then his car got loose and almost crossed the centerline. Matos saw all that, gave Flamholc a lot of room, giving up lane choice against Hancock in the semifinals.
