ENNIS, Texas - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Extreme Pro Stock at the American Drag Racing League, ADRL World Finals VIII presented by CarSafe listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:
Left Lane: Brad Waddle Runs 5.184/96.70, Now #1
Right Lane: Rick Cowger Runs 6.608/71.48, Now #2
1:01 p.m. Waddle launched, then shook. Cowger spun, then shook.
Left Lane: Kevin Bealko Runs 4.164/171.36, Now #1
Right Lane: Matt Bertsch Runs 4.203/172.98, Now #2
Bertsch used up a lot of his lane on this one and Bealko's run wasn't all that straight either.
Left Lane: Larry O'Brien Runs 4.114/176.84, Now #2
Right Lane: Richard Penland Runs 4.100/176.30, Now #1
That was better, both cars made nice, straight runs.

Richard Penland's incremental times: 60ft-0.990 sec., 330ft-2.703.
Left Lane: Scott Hintz Runs 4.081/177.14, Now #2
Right Lane: Elijah Morton Runs 4.074/178.14, Now #1
Hintz took the long route down the left lane, Morton just went from A to B in the right.
Scott Hintz's incremental times: 60ft-0.974 sec., 330ft-2.685.
Elijah Morton's incremental times: 60ft-0.996 sec., 330ft-2.690.
Left Lane: David Schorr Runs 4.091/175.73, Now #3
Right Lane: John Montecalvo Runs 7.276/83.21, Now #10
Montecalvo spun the right rear and got very sideways on the launch, then lifted. Schorr's run wasn't the straightest we've seen in the left lane, but he got the job done.
David Schorr's incremental times: 60ft-0.970 sec., 330ft-2.686.
Left Lane: John Pluchino Runs 4.089/177.04, Now #3
Right Lane: Dean Goforth Runs 4.095/175.59, Now #5
Two pretty good runs, but both cars were moving around a bit.
John Pluchino's incremental times: 60ft-0.992 sec., 330ft-2.697.
Dean Goforth's incremental times: 60ft-0.988 sec., 330ft-2.696.
Left Lane: Pete Berner Runs 4.051/177.09, Now #2
Right Lane: John Deflorian Jr. Runs 4.040/179.95, Now #1
Well, the runs looked quick and the results were quick, but we can't tell you how they got there. For some reason, only the finish line numbers came up, no incrementals. Deflorian's speed is a pending record.
Left Lane: Todd Hoerner Runs 4.060/178.64, Now #3
Right Lane: Brian Gahm Runs 5.635/94.15, Now #14
Nice run by Hoerner. Gahm spun and shook and lifted.
Todd Hoerner's incremental times: 60ft-0.990 sec., 330ft-2.681.
Left Lane: Cary Goforth No Time, Now #18
Right Lane: Richie Stevens Jr Runs 4.096/176.84, Now #9
Goforth spun and shook, losing something in drivelineshaft. He stopped about 150 feet out. Good pass for Stevens, but it put him in the bottom half.
