Nitro Harley Qualifying Notes, Session #1
By Larry Sullivan

LAS VEGAS - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Nitro Harley at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, Pacific Division, Shortline Express Gambler Shootout at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway listing lane, rider name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:
Left Lane: Tommy Grimes Runs 6.324/220.55, Now #1
Right Lane: Ron Gledhill Runs 8.797/106.53, Now #2

3:36 p.m. Grimes was leaning hard in the early part of the run, but he's one of the best and got the bike back to the groove for a nice run. Gledhill had the front wheel down and was basically cruising before half track.

Left Lane: Tony Ruggiero Runs 6.965/200.77, Now #2
Right Lane: Andy Beauchemin Runs 7.142/187.23, Now #3

Ruggerio came close tio a full pass, but it went silent before the stripe. Beauchemin got to half track in pretty good shape, but lost power shortly after that.

Left Lane: Jay Turner Runs 8.561/108.57, Now #5
Right Lane: Steve Dorn Runs 6.557/213.70, Now #2

Turner was using up a lot of the lane early in the run and shut it off before half track. Dorn made a full pass to move to the #2 spot.

Left Lane: Steve Ruggiero Runs 8.273/114.65, Now #5
Right Lane: Damian Cownden Runs 13.941/78.69, Now #8

Cownden's engine went silent early in the run and it looked like Ruggerio pitched the drive belt past half track.

Left Lane: Toni Froehling No Time, Now #10
Right Lane: Kevin Boyer Runs 13.270/82.62, Now #8

Froehling had problems in the water and did not make a run. Boyer's bike shook hard and he shut it off.

Left Lane: Steve Heidner Runs 10.615/87.48, Now #8

Heidner closed the round with a shaky run, the engine going sour before he shut it off.
