    7 Reggie Showers                          2 Craig Treble
E1   ****WINNER****  0.065  7.233 181.94                    -0.001  8.580 106.04
 Qualified:             #8  7.210 185.51                        #9  7.210 183.44
Reggie Has the chance to double up here with a win today adding $10,000 to his K & N Klash payout from last weekend. Another bulb, this time by a mere thousandth and Treble shuts off early and coasts his way out of the action

   51 Fred Collis                            10 Steve Johnson
E1   ****WINNER****  0.009  7.238 177.42                     0.630  7.364 178.64
 Qualified:             #4  7.179 183.74                       #13  7.238 181.81
THis is Johnson's 15th Indy start, having made his first appearance here in 1987. Wow, Johnson should have waited for the next pair with a .630 light and Collis wins this one easily. clinching the deal with a .009 light that would have been hard to top.

  206 Brian Schultz                           1 Angelle Savoie

Yet another foul, this time by first time Indy qualifier Schultz as everyone seems to be a little anxious today.

  405 Blaine Hale                           485 GT Tonglet
E1                  -0.010  7.352 179.06     ****WINNER****  0.023  8.377 113.92
 Qualified:            #11  7.228 188.36                        #6  7.190 184.27
Willie G Davidson is on the start line to watch Tonglet on the V-rod. Still another foul, this time for Hale and Tonglet shuts off early for some reason that is not immediately apparent.

  412 Michael Phillips                      504 Andrew Hines
E1                   0.028  7.326 179.66     ****WINNER****  0.006  7.288 185.74
 Qualified:            #15  7.251 178.54                        #2  7.162 190.65
Andrew is the third member of the Hines family to make the show here following his father and brother. Hines is just on t he good side of a red light with a .006 reaction time and has Phillips covered all the way.

    8 Mike Berry                              4 Antron Brown
E1                  -0.009  7.234 179.44     ****WINNER****  0.020  7.264 181.69
 Qualified:            #10  7.217 184.30                        #7  7.205 185.33
Again the intimidation factor appears to have an effect and Berry gives this one away on the line to 2000 winner Brown on the Army bike..

    5 Shawn Gann                            505 Chris Reuter
E1   ****WINNER****  0.153  7.206 182.35                    -0.007  7.350 184.35

Making his first Indy start Reuter goes red by .007 and Gann has low e.t. of the round to seal the deal and take lane choice over Tonglet. Savoie will get to pick over Showers, Collis picks over Scali and Brown over Hines in the second stanza.
