ELIMINATION CHALLENGE #7: While in stunt cars, each team gets three chances to post the fastest lap time possible while driving around a racetrack covered in dirt.

The order:

1. Team Avalanche
2. Team VW
3. Team Solstice

Like this week's stage, this challenge was close, too. By ONE TENTH OF A SECOND, the winners with a time of 43.46 are...
