I experianced the same thing at my last auto-x. It was the last run so I decided to go all out. I also tried left foot braking for the first time. Well I got through the saloms and into the first big sweeping left. Well I pushed the clutch in instead of the brake . As soon as the AWD was was gone I went spinning. I did a huge 360 and took out about 6 cones. The whole time I had the clutch in. Well the car died and I was scared for a second. But she turned over with no problems. I finished the course with 3 cones crammed under my car. I always have very little fuel at meets so it must be the fuel pump running dry. Like ciper said.
