    I have gone back and watched the video of the finish and I believe the reason it looks like Thornton won is because the camera showing the last lap was not actually positioned right on the finish line. The way it looks to me is that the finish line is several yards further down the track. I think at the time they passed the camera Thornton was ahead, but on the top side Sheppard was probably 10-15mph faster and got ahead right at the line.

    Cant believe i missed this one sitting in my favorite seat at the Mississippi valley fair grounds. Just a short drive over the bridge, west down river drive then north to Locust street. This was a truly great race on the small track. Tonight will separate the men from the boys. The challenge....the big and fast half mile. The Kosiskis's, Birky, Mars and Darren Miller have dominated the half mile in years past.

    You need to adjust the antenna on your tin foil hat. Transponders do not lie.

    I saw a transponder lie at Eldora on a preliminary night a few years ago. The crowd booed and the result was changed. I saw a guy win by 2 feet at PRP and "lose" a few years back. That wire isn't always straight across the track or even under the flagstand.
    Droop isn't the problem.

    Originally I thought Thornton was going to win it, but that outside groove carried more momentum. It was the angle of the camera that made it look like Thornton won. Either way, it was a hell of a race. Best I've seen on the 1/4 mile. A big shout out to the track prep crew.
