7:33 p.m. -- Not sure how much longer we are going to be racing here this evening. Race officials have just announced that the planned second round of eliminations for Stock Eliminator has been postponed until tomorrow. Hanratty's car made a move toward the center line. He tried to drive through it but could not catch up to Bollman.

Algieri got into eliminations as an alternate for Tom Stalba and will be moving on to the third round. Voight launched and the brake lights came on as soon as he launched and stayed on the entire way down the track.

Hanratty had trouble doing his burnout and was not able to get any smoke from the tires. He went red and had problems on the track so Hopkins got an easy win and will race Bollman in the next round.

Cultrera will race Algieri tomorrow in round three. I wonder if Algieri's luck will hold out for another round.
