MARTIN, Mich. - Notes from round 3 qualifying in Aeromotive Fuel Systems Pro Mod at the 2013 ADRL Tour presented by Speedtech, ADRL Summer Drags IX 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: Dave Roemer Runs 9.131/47.44, Now #18; Best prior run: 4.332/172.72, Was #18
Right Lane: Kenny Lang Runs 4.152/181.79, Now #12; Best prior run: 3.998/189.61, Was #12
5:24 p.m. Roemer's car lost traction on the right rear and made a sharp right turn. He caught it before anything really bad happened. Lang made a decent-looking run, but off his earlier pace.
Left Lane: Chip King Runs 5.257/95.50, Now #11; Best prior run: 3.977/196.25, Was #11
Right Lane: Steve Matusek Runs 5.489/91.04, Now #17; Best prior run: 4.233/173.41, Was #17
Both shook, both went toward the closest wall.
Left Lane: Dan Stevenson Runs 4.467/128.94, Now #14; Best prior run: 4.042/185.81, Was #14
Right Lane: Larry Higginbotham Runs 7.172/69.53, Now #13; Best prior run: 4.038/178.16, Was #13
Almost the same story, except Stevenson was able to backpedal and finish the run, sort of.
Left Lane: Mike Janis Runs 7.357/63.62, Now #10; Best prior run: 3.961/191.00, Was #10
Right Lane: Jim Bell Runs 20.683/89.60, Now #20; No Prior Run
Bell came out last round, did not go down the track and was slow from the green this time around. Janis shook and slowed immediately.
Left Lane: Travis Harvey Runs 5.060/99.28, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.937/188.85, Was #6
Right Lane: Mike Gondziola Runs 4.102/186.24, Now #15; Best prior run: 4.048/188.52, Was #15
Gondziola failed to improve. Harvey shook and slowed.

Right Lane: Rickie Smith Runs 3.902/193.39, Now #1; Best prior run: 3.931/192.64, Was #5
Two nice runs, moving Tim Savell from first to third.
Kevin Rivenbark's incremental times: 60ft-0.980 sec., 330ft-2.612.
Rickie Smith's incremental times: 60ft-0.983 sec., 330ft-2.619.

Hamstra shook and slowed - still on the bump spot.
Left Lane: Clint Satterfield Runs 4.605/133.58, Now #19; Best prior run: 4.344/179.11, Was #19
Satterfield slowed once again and will be hoping for something better in the fourth session.

Savell closed the session with a busted run.
