1:18 p.m. - Reichert had a tough time during the first two qualifying sessions and had to depend on his third to make the field. Whatever problems Reichert had Friday and Saturday continued today as Thacker got by him to take the win and move on to round two. Both drivers took their cars down the groove but Thacker was quicker off the starting line and quicker on the track.
