"I had to at least get second if he won the race," Spencer remembers, "so I rode like crazy to get back up to him. And as the race went on, I felt, 'Hey, I could win this...'" Spencer eventually pulled into Roberts' slipstream and stayed there until the final lap. They entered the final corner side-by-side, impossibly deep, with Spencer on the better, inside line. Roberts braked first but too late, running off into the grass. Spencer blew the corner too, but recovered to win by a wheel.
