12:19 p.m. Boland had a small advantage at the green, but the race was close because both cars had some problems in the first half of the track, mostly tire shake. Boland took the lead on the top end and won by about 10 feet.

Then the fun began. The rear tires on Dilece's Camaro appeared to lock up and the car spun several times. In NASCAR terms, "He wrecked, he just didn't hit anything." After about three loopy-de-loops, his car stopped close to the wall without making any contact. From the top end, the report is that he didn't think the chutes came out and started stabbing the brakes. The left front locked up, starting the series of spins.

Latino was late and chased Lang a long way before taking the lead, winning by about half a car length, running his best ET of the weekend.

Latino will have lane choice against Boland in the final round.
