5:46 p.m. Hool did not make a test pass in the semifinals and, in hindsight, he might be questioning that decision. Pomponio shook and slowed almost immediately. Meanwhile, Hool got about 300 feet out and his car got very tail-happy, crossing the centerline and collecting the half-track timing reflectors.

Pomponio got to the finish line second, by three seconds, but he gets the first TAFC event win of the new season anyway.
