The left lane claims another burnout victim, as Taylor jumps out of his car and starts to push it back by himself, after losing power. The crew runs out and gets it behind the line.
Martin gets the power to the ground this session and runs well into the top half of the field. He may have done a quick pedal slap down track.
Todd Martin's incremental times: 60ft-0.947 sec., 330ft-2.533.
Left Lane: Tommy D'Aprile Runs 3.698/204.17, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.708/205.07, Was #2
Right Lane: Brandon Pesz Runs 3.958/161.23, Now #12; No Prior Run
Pesz gets to the line under power this time and has a bunch of fun getting to the finish line. He runs 0.002 in sixty feet to D'Apriles RT and 0.024 at 330. The car starts to move towards the wall after that and he has to man handle the car off the wall.
D'Aprile picks up a little ET and loses a little speed to stay number two. Nice pass!
