Left Lane: Bubba Stanton Runs 3.666/207.40, Now #4; Best prior run: 3.605/210.37, Was #4
Nice run by Stanton, but he was quicker on his very first qualifying run.
Left Lane: Neal Wantye Runs 5.083/96.64, Now #16; Best prior run: 3.748/208.14, Was #16
Right Lane: Tim Tindle Runs 3.720/204.48, Now #8; Best prior run: 3.650/205.72, Was #8
Wantye's car made a big move to the right and almost crossed the centerline. Nice run by Tindle, but not an improvement.
Left Lane: Todd Martin No Time, Now #9; Best prior run: 3.666/206.48, Was #9
Right Lane: Randell Reid Runs 3.792/197.33, Now #18; Best prior run: 3.791/178.71, Was #18
Martin staged the car, but never left the line. Reid almost duplicated his best run from yesterday, but with a much bigger speed.
Left Lane: Jay Diedrich Runs 3.858/201.04, Now #19; Best prior run: 3.814/203.58, Was #19
Right Lane: Art McMahan Runs 3.776/201.01, Now #15; Best prior run: 3.711/203.16, Was #15
Neither driver improved, Diedrich doesn't make the show.
Left Lane: Frankie Taylor Runs 3.845/156.05, Now #1; Best prior run: 3.577/212.19, Was #1
Right Lane: John Stanley Runs 3.754/202.61, Now #11; Best prior run: 3.702/207.24, Was #11
Taylor needs a 3.612 to back up his 3.577 from last night. Doesn't seem likely in these conditions, but nobody expected him to run that number last night, either.
He made a strong charge, but something let go about 500 feet out, maybe the blower belt, and he slowed.
Left Lane: Gaylen Smith Runs 3.889/193.93, Now #21; Best prior run: 3.892/187.60, Was #22
Right Lane: Tommy D'Aprile Runs 3.652/205.26, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.580/209.85, Was #2
Smith improved slightly, but not enough to qualify. D'Aprile made the quickest run of the session, edging out Stanley and Snyder.
Left Lane: Brandon Pesz Runs 3.658/208.14, Now #3; Best prior run: 3.587/211.43, Was #3
Right Lane: Danny Lowry No Time, Now #22; Best prior run: 3.892/198.00, Was #22
Lowry never did get his car staged and was timed out. Pesz made a nice run, second-quickest of the session.
Left Lane: Quain Stott Runs 5.839/87.54, Now #14; Best prior run: 3.711/204.94, Was #14
Right Lane: Clint Thompson Runs 3.883/198.90, Now #17; Best prior run: 3.755/203.92, Was #17
Thompson started this round on the bump spot and Brandon Snider bumped him out. Neal Wantye is on the bump spot at 3.748.
Thompson's car was wagging its tail early in the run and he had a 1.012 60-foot time.
Left Lane: Todd Moyer Runs 4.075/200.86, Now #24; Best prior run: 4.050/198.47, Was #23
Right Lane: Terry Leggett Runs 3.874/198.23, Now #21; Best prior run: 4.282/144.03, Was #24
Moyer was off the pace from the start with a 1.10 60-foot time. Leggett had a good start, with a 0.961 60-foot time, but the car shook a couple hundred feet out and he backpedaled to get through it.
