Tim Wilkerson vs. Jim Campbell in round one and the cars staged and launched well. Campbell's car got in trouble early and then Wilkerson's car spun the rear tires, lost cylinders, and then blew the body up with an engine explosion.
"It started spinning and when I got back into it, and then the car just exploded. The crew is back there getting busy on fixing the car. But it's kinda sad, we don't have a lot of those Mustang bodies."—Tim Wilkerson
