CECIL, Ga. - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Pro Extreme Motorcycle at the 2013 ADRL Tour presented by Speedtech, Hardee's Georgia Drags VII listing lane, rider name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:
Left Lane: Ryan Schnitz Runs 4.205/172.98, Now #1
Right Lane: Jack Young Runs 4.263/162.16, Now #2
10:09 a.m. There are at least 30 motorcycles here, may be a couple more late arrivals whose tech cards have not made it to the tower yet.
Good runs to open the round, with the number of bikes here, those runs won't be at the top for long.
Left Lane: Brunson Grothus Runs 4.179/168.28, Now #1
Right Lane: Mantez Thompson Runs 4.268/165.84, Now #4
Left Lane: Chuck Wilburn Runs 5.061/111.40, Now #6
Right Lane: Travis Davis Runs 4.208/167.76, Now #3
Sounded like Wilburn missed a shift.
Left Lane: T.T. Jones Runs 9.727/39.92, Now #8
Right Lane: Monte Campbell Runs 4.241/158.69, Now #4
Jones slowed after the launch, could not see why. He stopped on the track, needed help to get off the end of the track.
Left Lane: Eric McKinney Runs 4.083/173.43, Now #1
Right Lane: Jeremy Teasley Runs 4.208/159.63, Now #5
McKinney goes to the top, by almost a tenth.

Collins broke on the starting line.
Left Lane: Ashley Owens Runs 4.074/173.61, Now #1
Right Lane: Kim Morrell No Time, Now #14
Morrell left before the tree was activated, then the bike bucked and snorted a couple times. Owens ran very close to the run he made during yesterday's test & tune session to take over the top spot.
Left Lane: Charlie Prophit Runs 6.850/61.18, Now #13
Right Lane: Terry Schweigert Runs 4.097/171.38, Now #3
Spunded like something broke on Prophit's bike in the middle of the run, but Schweigert joined those under 4.10 at the top of the list on a nice run.
Left Lane: Tyler Wilson Runs 6.784/64.89, Now #14
Right Lane: Ronald Procopio Runs 4.110/173.05, Now #4
Wilson's Buell started bucking and snorting in the middle of the run. Nice pass by Procopio.
Left Lane: Paul Gast Runs 4.378/144.13, Now #14
Right Lane: Dave Vantine Runs 4.292/162.00, Now #13
Vantines bike started smoking heavily after he crossed the stripe aand the run was well off his usual pace.
Left Lane: Casey Stemper Runs 4.212/173.99, Now #10
Right Lane: Richard Gadson Runs 4.516/119.65, Now #16
Left Lane: Dave Norris Runs 4.174/169.44, Now #6
Right Lane: Jay Fisher Runs 4.175/166.37, Now #7
Almost identical runs for the final pair of the session. There was a big flash of flame from Fisher's bike as he crossed the stripe.
Left Lane: Terry Wynn Runs 4.267/156.46, Now #15
And a single run to close the session.
After one session, Ashlkey Owens is on the top of the list at 4.074 and Mantez Thompson is on the bump spot at 4.268.
