   33 Ray Drew                                7 Kris Hool                    
E1                   0.048  5.746 255.15     ****WINNER****  0.152  5.563 264.55
 Qualified:             #6  8.109 111.42                        #3  5.591 260.97
1:54 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 66 degrees, relative humidity 33 percent, barometer 30.11 inches, adjusted altitude 618 feet, track temperature 85 degrees.

Drew had a tenth of a second holeshot advantage, but that wasn't enough because once Hool got moving, he took the lead before half track, then pulled away for the win.

        Bye                                   5 John Lombardo Jr.            
E1                                            ****WINNER****  0.126  5.491 266.37

Lombardo gets the odd-lot bye to get ready for the semifinals. He made a very nice run - he's ready.

John Lombardo Jr.'s incremental times: 60ft-0.946 sec., 330ft-2.468, 660ft-3.644/212.23 mph, 1,000ft-4.645.

E1                   0.049  5.955 193.13     ****WINNER****  0.034  5.573 256.26

Brown had a good light, but Westerfield's was even better. It was close at 60 feet, then Westerfield started pulling away and Brown's car ran out of steam well short of the stripe.

Westerfield lost lane choice to Hool in the semifinals by a hundredth.

Billington popped his supercharger in qualifying and is already headed home. Foster made a nice run to get ready to face Lombardo in the semifinals, Lombardo will have lane choice.
