4:08 p.m. Rister's team got their problems sorted out and he moved well up in the field. Wantye's car shook again
Left Lane: Von Smith Runs 3.719/202.45, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.731/204.11, Was #6
Right Lane: Bubba Stanton Runs 5.643/82.26, Now #4; Best prior run: 3.710/206.29, Was #4
Smith made his third three-seventies run in a row, nice and smooth. Stanton launched, shook, and lifted.

Right Lane: Joey Martin Runs 4.626/107.76, Now #7; Best prior run: 3.742/200.86, Was #7
Lots of shake in both lanes, Martin getting up on two wheels briefly. Hossler did a great job of backpedaling to finish his run, but Martin decided that getting up on "the bicycle" was a good reason to lift.

Right Lane: Eric Dillard Runs 3.798/211.63, Now #10; Best prior run: 3.830/208.46, Was #9
This time both cars stayed in the groove (more or less) and both drivers were in the seventies for the first time today.

Right Lane: Mick Snyder Runs 7.397/57.80, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.705/204.79, Was #2
Stanley made a great run, just missed the seventies. Snyder, who skipped the second session, shook and lifted.

Snider made his birnout, but the crew had problems making the wheelie bar adjustment and he finally shut it off.
