They said something got in the lights and based on spotters they declared Robins the winner.

They had a spotter at the finish line and one at about 660 :smt038.

I am glad they were able to see a winner, but they sure missed that piece that came off the primer mustang about 6.00pm :smt119.

They were going to run the cars and a photographer had to jump
onto the track waving his arms and yelling and pointing at the piece that was about at the 330 mark. It seemed like 30 seconds before the starter saw him, and shut it down.
About 5 of us in the stands on spectator side at about 660, saw it, but 2 spotters and the starter did not :confused:.

That was a great race to watch! We were pretty close to the tree and Ballard got a pretty good jump on Robbins. Place went nuts when the numbers went up. Only to hear a few minutes later that the "glitch" happened! The Olds liked the night air a lot better and picked up pretty good in elims. As Ballard was #1 qualifier.
