BRISTOL, Tenn. - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Precision Turbo & Engine Pro Turbo at the 2013 X-Treme Drag Racing League, X-DRL Thunder Valley Madness listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:
Left Lane: Todd Moyer Runs 6.078/84.17, Now #2
Right Lane: Dennis Sugrue Runs 4.038/192.77, Now #1
Two really bad lights, but Sugrue thunders on down the track to set the mark for the rest of the field.
Moyer's Corvette was a hand full and he is on and off the throttle before giving it up.
Dennis Sugrue's incremental times: 60ft-1.055 sec., 330ft-2.746.
Left Lane: Jose Gonzales No Time, Now #6
Right Lane: Mike Murillo Runs 6.671/83.30, Now #5
Gonzales times out before staging and will not get to run. The car is pushed away.
Murillo's car gets loose and he has to lift.
Left Lane: Jim Bell Runs 4.196/182.13, Now #2
Bell's day with a brand new car goes from great to sucks.
The car makes a strong leave and runs strong to the finish line and into the number two spot without any issues.
The chutes came out and the car started to slow, but then darted back and forth before just nosing into the right lane wall just past the quarter mile lights.
He is quickly out of the car and surveying the damage. The report is light to moderate damage.
Jim Bell's incremental times: 60ft-1.078 sec., 330ft-2.832.
