Right Lane: Cary Goforth Runs 6.561/213.33, Now #14; Best prior run: 8.704/111.42, Was #16

7:23 p.m. There will be no bumping, just 16 cars made the long trip up here.

Goforth made his best run of the weekend, by a bunch, to move off the 16th spot. Penland failed to improve and inherited the last spot on the ladder.

Both drivers were under a second for the first 60 feet, neither moved on the ladder.

Left Lane: Jerry Haas Runs 6.540/213.81, Now #10; Best prior run: 6.518/214.31, Was #10

Dan Sweeney should have been in the other lane, was a no-show.

Haas made a good run, but failed to improve.


Left Lane: Rick Jones Runs 6.518/214.42, Now #9; Best prior run: 6.518/214.72, Was #9
Right Lane: Elijah Morton Runs 6.562/213.06, Now #12; Best prior run: 6.539/213.13, Was #12

Jones matched his best prior run, Morton lost three hundredths from his best, nothing changed.

Left Lane: Rob Mansfield Runs 6.538/213.54, Now #7; Best prior run: 6.502/214.52, Was #7
Right Lane: John Nobile Runs 6.559/212.96, Now #8; Best prior run: 6.508/213.91, Was #8

Right Lane: Jeff Dobbins Runs 6.534/214.28, Now #6; Best prior run: 6.499/214.18, Was #6

So far, Mansfield was the only one in the forties in this session and these two did nothing to change that. Both made good runs, but a few ticks off their best run.

Left Lane: Pete Berner Runs 6.518/213.98, Now #3; Best prior run: 6.479/214.04, Was #3
Right Lane: Tony Gillig Runs 6.493/214.66, Now #4; Best prior run: 6.484/213.23, Was #4
