Right Lane: Jeg Coughlin Runs 6.699/206.13, Now #8; Best prior run: 6.738/205.51, Was #18
Coughlin with a real nice pass here a good short time...Jeg Coughlin's incremental times: 60ft-0.992 sec., 330ft-2.796, 660ft-4.303/163.81mph, 1,000ft-5.605. He gets into the show and bumps out Hankinson. Line gets off the bubble spot.
Left Lane: Steve Schmidt Runs 7.041/160.84, Now #16; Best prior run: 6.725/205.04, Was #16
Right Lane: Mike Edwards Runs 6.730/204.94, Now #18; Best prior run: 6.731/204.73, Was #18
Edwards with his best pass of the weekend, but he will not get back into the show. Schmidt will stay on the bubble.
Left Lane: Kenny Koretsky Runs 6.736/204.35, Now #16; Best prior run: 6.724/205.16, Was #15
Right Lane: Craig Hankinson Runs 6.721/205.29, Now #15; Best prior run: 6.725/204.63, Was #17
Hankinson gets back into the show and that will bump our Schmidt and move Koretsky down to the bump spot.

Kenny Koretsky is on the bump spot at 6.724, and I belive they will just be racing for starting position now. Gaines with a good launch and parlayed that into his best pass of the weekend. He moves into the top half of the show. Johnson with his best pass of the weekend, but will only move up one spot on the ladder.
Left Lane: Warren Johnson Runs 6.714/205.76, Now #14; Best prior run: 6.705/206.20, Was #14
