ENNIS, Texas - Notes from final, round 4 qualifying in Pro Nitrous 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: Monroe Guest Runs 4.051/185.23, Now #13; Best prior run: 4.008/186.72, Was #13
Right Lane: Jim Laurita No Time, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.795/196.73, Was #2
1:45 p.m. Since there are exactly 16 cars here, it's an all-run field.
Laurita's car suddenly revved up and lurched forward, through the staging beams before the tree was activated.
Guest made a clean run, but is more than a tenth off the competitive pace
Left Lane: John Hall Runs 4.016/190.94, Now #7; Best prior run: 3.874/194.63, Was #7
Right Lane: Pat Stoken Runs 3.830/195.68, Now #1; Best prior run: 3.769/198.44, Was #1
Nice pass by Stoken. Hall spun the tires on the launch.

Right Lane: Chris Juliano Runs 4.012/184.57, Now #12; Best prior run: 3.996/186.51, Was #12
