ENNIS, Texas - Notes from final, round 4 qualifying in Pro Extreme Motorcycle at the American Drag Racing League, ADRL World Finals VIII presented by CarSafe listing lane, rider 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: Jeff House Runs 4.244/166.05, Now #8; Best prior run: 5.570/84.38, Was #12
Right Lane: Charlie Prophit Runs 4.200/146.77, Now #7; No Prior Run
1:15 p.m. The field is not full, so there is no bump spot.
Both bikes in this first pair had problems in the earlier rounds, both made good runs here.
Left Lane: Charles Seaton Runs 6.529/81.93, Now #14; Best prior run: 4.915/140.71, Was #13
Right Lane: Casey Stemper Runs 4.141/172.87, Now #3; Best prior run: 5.911/78.97, Was #14
Seaton's bike slowed, sounded sour, and trailed some smoke. He may not make it back for round one. Stemper got his problems worked out, made a very good run to move near the top of the field.
Left Lane: C.D. Watson Runs 4.349/164.59, Now #11; Best prior run: 4.353/163.71, Was #11
