Reid breaks on the burnout and has to be pushed back.

Folse gets the easy win, but it's almost a disaster, as the car drives directly towards the center line at the green. He whips the car back so hard, the right side door came way open. He stays in his lane and will race Gulitti later.

He stops on the track after the finish line and a track official had to rehang the door, so he could drive it off the track.
