ENNIS, Texas - Notes from final, round 4 qualifying in Aeromotive Fuel Systems Pro Mod 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: Pat Musi Runs 3.915/192.06, Now #1; Best prior run: 3.873/193.54, Was #1

12:28 p.m. Tim Tindle is on the bump spot at 3.944 and the points leader is outside the field.
Good runs by the first pair, nothing changes on the ladder.
Left Lane: Pete Farber Runs 3.989/193.65, Now #3; Best prior run: 3.886/194.80, Was #3
Right Lane: Tim Tindle Runs 4.069/183.27, Now #8; Best prior run: 3.944/188.12, Was #8
Again, no improvement and Tindle stays on the bump spot.
Left Lane: David Wolfe No Time, Now #10; Best prior run: 3.979/195.19, Was #10
Right Lane: Steve Matusek Runs 4.029/188.25, Now #11; Best prior run: 3.988/202.88, Was #11
Wolfe left before the tree was activated. Matusek's car popped and banged, lost a lot of time earlly in the run.
Left Lane: Mike Janis Runs 5.258/94.83, Now #4; Best prior run: 3.911/193.54, Was #4
Right Lane: Raymond Commisso Runs 4.013/189.95, Now #12; Best prior run: 3.989/191.62, Was #12
Janis shook and slowed. Commisso made a full pass, failed to improve.
Left Lane: Chip King Runs 4.070/190.59, Now #13; Best prior run: 4.492/145.27, Was #14
Right Lane: Mike Castellana Runs 3.884/193.40, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.875/193.99, Was #2
No change here either, Castellana with three good runs in four tries so far.
Left Lane: Jeffrey Cummins Jr Runs 3.929/188.02, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.942/186.79, Was #6
Right Lane: Clint Satterfield Runs 3.977/197.83, Now #5; Best prior run: 3.913/198.09, Was #5
Cummins ran a career-best ET and stayed right where he was on the ladder.
Left Lane: Jeff Naiser Runs 4.027/185.72, Now #13; Best prior run: 4.126/161.71, Was #14
Naiser leads Mike Castellana by 129 points right now and Pat Musi is another 21 points back.
Not sure what went wrong, but it sounded like the car did not shift at all, the RPMs high and steady, and now Naiser can only hope that both Castellana and Musi lose in round one.
Left Lane: Todd Tutterow Runs 4.017/197.57, Now #7; Best prior run: 3.943/198.15, Was #7
Tutterow closed out the round with a run that looked okay, but it was not his best.
