PETERSBURG, Va. - Notes from final, round 2 qualifying in Pro Extreme at the 2013 ADRL Tour presented by Speedtech, Simply Phones U.S. Drags VI listing lane, driver name, elapsed time/top speed this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run:
Left Lane: Neal Wantye No Time, Now #7; Best prior run: 3.829/198.15, Was #7
Right Lane: Gene Hector Runs 4.799/106.17, Now #8; Best prior run: 5.197/96.08, Was #8
10:54 p.m. Wantye left before the tree was activated. One of Hector's chutes came out early in the run once again - that's twice today.
Left Lane: Joey Martin Runs 6.186/86.53, Now #11; Best prior run: 7.020/83.33, Was #13
Right Lane: Jason Scruggs Runs 3.605/212.43, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.634/208.04, Was #2
Martin shut off early once again. Scruggs made a very nice run, straight and smooth.
Jason Scruggs' incremental times: 60ft-0.917 sec., 330ft-2.436.
Left Lane: Danny Lowry Runs 4.336/143.66, Now #8; Best prior run: 5.764/88.54, Was #10
Right Lane: Bubba Stanton Runs 6.642/84.94, Now #13; Best prior run: 7.018/68.03, Was #13
Something came off of Stanton's car - possibly a blower belt. Lowry was way off the pace early in the run - but he still improved.
Left Lane: Brandon Snider Runs 4.969/132.28, Now #10; Best prior run: 6.632/83.62, Was #12
Right Lane: Todd Tutterow Runs 3.751/205.38, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.798/204.17, Was #6
Looks like we are going to run a few minutes past the curfew. Hey, it's Saturday night!
Nice run by Tutterow. Snider once again struggled, surprising after running well at Cordova.
Left Lane: Steve George Runs 6.334/72.69, Now #12; Best prior run: 5.694/87.70, Was #11
Right Lane: Von Smith Runs 3.693/208.30, Now #5; Best prior run: 8.659/48.69, Was #14
George is in the School Bus this weekend. He made a move toward the wall and lifted. Smith made a nice run to move into the top half of the field.
Left Lane: John Stanley Runs 5.531/117.60, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.695/206.26, Was #6
Right Lane: Mick Snyder Runs 3.832/183.52, Now #4; Best prior run: 3.680/203.40, Was #4
Stanley shook and slowed. Snyder's car left hard, then it looked like there was a spray of fuel followed by a big flash of flame and he slowed.
Left Lane: Tommy D'Aprile Runs 5.361/86.38, Now #3; Best prior run: 3.648/206.92, Was #3
Last car of the day.
D'Aprile left hard, .883 for the first 60 feet, but he started rattling the tires and lifted.
