Muroya blows it! No way... it's 53.275 and Podlunsek is through!
Next head to head is Velarde V Chambliss...
And the Spaniard is out into the track but that's a Safety Climb Out and Gate 2 has gone down :(
Wind picking up again... reading 33kts at the Start Gate
We expect Velarde to enter the track for a second run...
And the wind is down again to 23kts :)
Velarde is back! Here we go :)
Into the track and let's hope the pylons behave!
That's a smoother run and he's almost home and dry! He needs to beat Chambliss if he wants to progress!
And there it is! It's 50.550 for Velarde and that could be tough for Chambliss to follow!
Chambliss flies next, hoping to end his season with a solid result – he could make the World Championship podium if he gets enough points today...
And he's into the track! That's red at the first split, but he's green at the second!
He could totally ruin this for Velarde... and it's green again! Almost half a second ahead!
He's got that race line nailed! And it's a 49.406 for Chambliss and he'll be thrilled with that!
With Muroya and McLeod out of the running for third, that's a great result for Chambliss
Next head to head is Petr Kopfstein V Nicolas Ivanoff...
Czech competitor Kopfstein goes first... he'll set the pace for the Frenchman to beat
Very lucky escape for Kopfstein there! He was sooooo close to that pylon!
Kopfstein stops the clock in 51.149 ready for Ivanoff to challenge...
Ivanoff heads into the track... Bonhomme says he's looking a little chaotic and that could see Kopfstein go through!
It's penalty-marred for Ivanoff... he picks up 4s for incorrect level Gate 2 and 7 :(
It's 53.708 for Ivanoff and Kopfstein goes through!
The fight for 3rd on the World Championship podium has just totally changed! Only Lamb or Chambliss can do it now... and Chambliss would need to finish in 2nd here in Las Vegas
