ROCKINGHAM, N.C. - Notes from round 2 qualifying in Pro Extreme at the 2013 ADRL Tour presented by Speedtech, Dragpalooza IX listing lane, driver name, elapsed time/top speed this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run:
Left Lane: Tommy D'Aprile Runs 3.617/208.55, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.667/206.89, Was #2
Right Lane: Von Smith Runs 3.598/212.09, Now #1; Best prior run: 5.320/86.35, Was #12
2:11 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 63 degrees, relative humidity 32 percent, barometer 29.76 inches, adjusted altitude 821 feet, track temperature 84 degrees.
D'Aprile made a very good run, but Smith beat him to the stripe with an even
better run. They both go to the top of the list and Smith reset both his career-best numbers.
Left Lane: Richard Holt Runs 4.016/151.51, Now #10; Best prior run: 4.177/134.46, Was #10
Right Lane: Tim Tindle Runs 3.681/207.24, Now #4; Best prior run: 3.807/172.41, Was #8
Good run for Tindle. Holt had a good launch, but ran into tire shake and had to backpedal.
Left Lane: Joey Martin Runs 7.442/69.35, Now #11; Best prior run: 4.562/116.55, Was #11
Right Lane: Alex Hossler Runs 3.603/211.33, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.777/183.05, Was #7
Martin once again shook violenlty at the launch, getting sideways. Hossler made a very nice run, taking the #2 spot from D'Aprile.
Alex Hossler's incremental times: 60ft-0.903 sec., 330ft-2.427.
Left Lane: Mick Snyder Runs 5.096/95.66, Now #13; No Prior Run
Right Lane: Jason Scruggs Runs 3.847/170.13, Now #7; Best prior run: 3.726/208.81, Was #7
Snyder's door stayed put this time out, but tire shake slowed his pace. Scruggs was on a strong run until the blower belt came flying off.
Right Lane: Terry Leggett Runs 3.878/196.53, Now #9; Best prior run: 4.011/185.10, Was #9
Bubba Stanton was in line to run beside Leggett, but the car did not fire. Under ADRL rules, since he did not make the burnout, he has until the end of the session to fix it.
Leggett made a full pass, much better than his first try today.
Left Lane: Stefan Holmberg Runs 4.643/149.08, Now #12; No Prior Run
Right Lane: Brandon Snider Runs 5.032/99.71, Now #13; Best prior run: 4.841/101.22, Was #12
Holmberg's car kept goping to the left, out of the groove for the entire run. Snider had a good launch, then shook.
Right Lane: John Stanley Runs 5.919/86.92, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.691/209.04, Was #6
Stanley shook and slowed.
Left Lane: Todd Tutterow Runs 3.727/204.32, Now #8; Best prior run: 3.785/203.92, Was #8
Tutterow used up a lot of his lane, still improved, stayed eighth.
Left Lane: Bubba Stanton Runs 3.633/211.59, Now #4; Best prior run: 3.625/211.56, Was #4
Stanton's crew got the problem figured out. He made a strong run, but failed to improve.
Bubba Stanton's incremental times: 60ft-0.921 sec., 330ft-2.455.
