Right Lane: Steve George Runs 3.952/188.71, Now #14; Best prior run: 3.988/184.97, Was #14
Stanton kept getting closer and closer to the centerline and he never lifted. He missed the timing reflectors by inches. George flogged the school bus a little harder this time out, improved slightly.

Dillard stepped way up, then shed a body part or two in the lights. Jeffers failed to improve and Dillard's run put Jeffers on the bump spot.
