The huge storm knocked out power to the circuit, leaving timekeeping in disarray. The results were questioned by some entrants, but they eventually stood without protest. The rainstorm, which clear blue sky a few miles away, divided the field in two halfs: those who changed tires and those who did not. The Nissan pair of Fury and Seton did change and won the race, while Brock stayed out, tiptoeing through the puddles and losing too much time in the process.
