It's lights out and away we go!

Smith pushes the start from the pole with 1s (modified 6) and goes outer rail at 80. Rund pushes with his big chip but mis-handles the clutch (modified 9) and falls back at 40.

Harley successfully pushes the start with his big chip (modified 3) to 120. He takes the racing line and the race lead. Bernhardt methodically inches up the track at 20.

Costa pushes to 120 with 1s (modified 8) and opts for the inside lane. Harrington takes 2s to get his racer up to 40 (modified 1).

Dygert creates a 3-wide near the starting line at 60. Attempting a push to 40, Hoyt can't find the clutch and stays where he is (natural 9). Note that he can use his ACC next turn.

The rear of the field, Milbourn, Schipper, Choi, and Marshall, all creep forward at 20.

I'm not so sure Rund should roll anymore dice this race...
