That only cost the 49ers a timeout, however, as the Giants' series ended with a failed field-goal attempt from 34 yards. Those arguments are understandable but nobody, especially the 49ers, wants to go winless.

Anita's hopes of qualifying for a junior dragster licence took a bad turn on Saturday, with the eight-year-old's dragster "Pony Power" slamming into a wall at the track.

Hundreds of friends and people from the racing community posted tributes online, some changing their social media profile pictures to the Rainbow Dash character from My Little Pony, which was emblazoned on Anita's 210cc purple dragster called Pony Power.

Police said they would prepare a report for a coroner.
