E2   ****WINNER****  0.070  7.814 129.48                     0.106  7.907 188.83
 Prior rounds:
E1    (R Gledhill  ) 0.085  7.049 155.79      (D Cownden   ) 0.079  7.805 194.38
 Qualified:             #4  6.408 215.37                       #10  8.142 195.36
2:30 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 81 degrees, relative humidity 20 percent, barometer 28.02 inches, adjusted altitude 4,008 feet, track temperature 103 degrees.

With the top qualifiers out in round one, this is anyone's race.

This was interesting. Turner left Boyer way behind at the start, Boyer's engine sluggish, then Turner got out of the throttle at half track and Boyer started reeling him in, but Turner managed to get enough out of his engine to hold Boyer off on the top end.

Jay Turner's incremental margins: 60ft(0.234), 330 ft(0.655), 660ft(0.809), 1,000ft(0.580). MOV: 0.1290 seconds (approximately 36 feet).

   66 Steve Dorn                             54 Andy Beauchemin              
E2                   0.050  7.257 158.71     ****WINNER****  0.046  6.675 206.70
 Prior rounds:
E1    (S Heidner   ) 0.066  6.384 218.09      (T Grimes    ) 0.106  6.824 192.71
 Qualified:             #3  6.389 215.93                        #7  6.892 207.78
Dorn had the early lead, but his engine started sounding sour and Beauchemin took the lead before the 1,000-foot marker and stayed there to the stripe.

Andy Beauchemin's incremental margins (negative if behind): 60ft(-0.087), 330 ft(-0.229), 660ft(-0.099), 1,000ft(0.218). MOV: 0.5867 seconds (more than 100 feet).

Beauchemin will have lane choice against Turner in the final round.
