 7189 Dean Carter                          5233 Taylor Chomiski

Carter'[s dragster can't back up after the burnout and has to be pushed back to the line. Nothing wrong with the "go forward" though, as he makes a clean pass.

Chomiski's Dart takes the green and then just stops on the track. He has to be pushed away!

WEIRD! Carter will race Kadar next round.

Hodges has the better light, but can't stay with Lambeck going down the track.
