BAYTOWN, Texas - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, South Central Division, Showdown at Sundown at Royal Purple Raceway listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:

Right Lane: Shane Westerfield Runs 5.535/261.12, Now #1

Billington slowly lost ground to Westerfield most of the way and then it sounded like he popped the burst panel.

Left Lane: Ray Drew Runs 8.109/111.42, Now #4
Right Lane: Kris Hool Runs 5.591/260.97, Now #2

Drew launched, shook, pedaled, shook again and lifted. Hool made a nice run, good enough to move into the second spot.

Kris Hool's incremental times: 60ft-0.953 sec., 330ft-2.494, 660ft-3.701/206.92 mph, 1,000ft-4.728.
