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.
