By Larry Sullivan





ENNIS, Texas - Notes from round 2 qualifying in Pro Extreme at the American Drag Racing League, ADRL World Finals VIII presented by CarSafe listing lane, driver name, elapsed time/top speed this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run:
Left Lane: Bubba Stanton No Time, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.605/210.37, Was #2
Right Lane: Danny Lowry Runs 3.892/198.00, Now #14; Best prior run: 5.345/101.46, Was #22

5:18 p.m. Both cars made burnouts, then Stanton shut his car off and was pushed away.

Lowry launched hard, but the car was moving around a lot and he lifted.

Left Lane: Duane Rister Runs 3.725/199.40, Now #9; Best prior run: 3.759/201.91, Was #9
Right Lane: Terry Leggett Runs 4.282/144.03, Now #18; Best prior run: 4.380/117.28, Was #18

Good pass by Rister, but he stays ninth. Leggett's car was rocking back and forth until he lifted briefly to settle it down.

Left Lane: Neal Wantye Runs 3.748/208.14, Now #10; Best prior run: 4.560/114.07, Was #19
Right Lane: Alex Hossler Runs 3.686/206.29, Now #3; Best prior run: 3.640/208.01, Was #3

Wantye's car took the long route to the stripe, getting way over near the centerline in the middle of the run. He did run a career-best speed.

Left Lane: Brandon Snider Runs 3.824/202.36, Now #12; Best prior run: 5.172/107.40, Was #22
Right Lane: Randell Reid Runs 4.554/114.00, Now #21; No Prior Run

Snider bumped his way into the field on a good run. Reid did manage to get to the finish line, but his car was huffing and puffing halfway there.

Now Danny Lowry is on the bump spot at 3.892.

Left Lane: Jason Scruggs Runs 3.613/210.18, Now #3; Best prior run: 3.654/208.81, Was #4
Right Lane: Clint Thompson Runs 3.767/204.20, Now #11; Best prior run: 4.273/131.37, Was #19

Once again Scruggs delivered an "in your face" performance in his battle with Mick Snyder for the championship. Thompson bumped his way into the field.

Now Jon Stouffer is on the bump spot at 3.873.

Left Lane: Jay Diedrich Runs 3.814/203.58, Now #12; Best prior run: 3.848/202.24, Was #14
Right Lane: John Stanley Runs 3.801/163.43, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.702/207.24, Was #6

Stanley fell off his first-session pace by about a tenth, but Diedrich picked up three hundredths and a couple of positions on the ladder.

Left Lane: Todd Martin Runs 3.685/205.91, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.870/189.79, Was #15
Right Lane: Mick Snyder Runs 3.627/210.18, Now #4; Best prior run: 4.905/99.66, Was #23

Snyder just moved back into the points lead with this run - now he's tucked in right behind Scruggs on the ladder.

Meanwhile, while everyone was watching Snyder, Martin ran a career-best ET to move up to sixth.

Now Brandon Snider is on the bump spot at 3.824.

Left Lane: Frankie Taylor Runs 3.622/210.54, Now #4; Best prior run: 4.632/110.73, Was #23
Right Lane: Jon Stouffer No Time, Now #18; Best prior run: 3.873/197.80, Was #17

Stouffer was just bumped from the field and his car went silent on the burnout.

Taylor jumped in between Snyder and Scruggs with this run, bumping Snider.

That puts Taylor's teammate Tim Tindle on the bump spot at 3.815.

Left Lane: Quain Stott Runs 3.729/200.29, Now #13; Best prior run: 4.245/143.12, Was #21
Right Lane: Tommy D'Aprile Runs 3.634/208.62, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.700/205.04, Was #8

Stott made a run good enough to bump into the field, but his car was trailing a light mist from the front of the car as he neared the stripe and he stopped way before the end of the track. D'Aprile made a very nice run, a career-best ET in fact.

Now Jay Diedrich is on the bump spot at 3.814.

Left Lane: Gaylen Smith Runs 3.892/187.60, Now #21; No Prior Run
Right Lane: Tim Tindle Runs 3.696/207.43, Now #9; Best prior run: 3.815/177.91, Was #17

Smith did not make a run in the first session and Tindle had problems on his first run.

Both made good runs to half track, Smith about a tenth behind Tindle, but Tindle maintained the pace, Smith slowed.

Now Clint Thompson is on the bump spot at 3.767.

Left Lane: Todd Moyer Runs 4.185/191.19, Now #22; Best prior run: 4.050/198.47, Was #22

Moyer launched, pedaled to get out of tire spin and went into a big wheelstand, had to backpedal a second time to get the front end down.

Now Clint Thompson is on the bump spot at 3.767.
