E1                   0.020  7.799 172.31     ****WINNER****  0.202 14.685  82.70
         T/S  Dial: 7.83 (+/-): -0.031             T/S  Dial: 7.51 (+/-):  7.175
Criest broke on the launch, but Allman did not look back and broke out, Criest still limping down the track when the win light came on. To add to the indignity, there was a trail of oil in Allman's lane. Bad timing, we are already running way behind schedule and they will try to run the Nitro Jam rounds on schedule.

Translation: We'll be here well after the Nitro Jam finals are run tonight.
