It's not often you see "The King" qualified down near the bottom of the field. He made a rather leisurely launch here, but it was a clean one and Donovan spun the tires hard in the other lane.

Davis will face Glaser in round 2.

Almost identical lights, Proctor closer to his dial-in for the win. Nesbitt did not run the number, could not see why.

  375 Mark Malcuit                           13 John Lassiter                
E1   ****WINNER****  0.086  4.405 161.85                     0.009 No Time

Lassiter had a great light, but about 200 feet out his car 'went wacky." It fishtailed, first left, then right, then almost swapped ends, getting completely sideways. He didn't hit anything and stayed in his own lane, somehow.

Malcuit had no problems at all and he will face Perkinson next round.
