 Qualified:             #4  6.345 227.42                        #1  6.165 224.88
2:19 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 76 degrees, relative humidity 22 percent, barometer 27.64 inches, adjusted altitude 4,166 feet, track temperature 102 degrees.

Grimes had problems in round one, but survived.

Both smoked the tires at the green and both dropped a cylinder (that's half of them), then both struggled down the track on reduced power and Grimes got there first by a bunch of feet.

   63 Jay Turner                              1 Doug Horne                   
E2                   0.028  7.446 131.68     ****WINNER****  0.026  6.317 210.90
 Prior rounds:
E1    (M Pelrine   ) 0.022  6.278 212.96      (M Scott     ) 0.050  6.295 226.32
 Qualified:             #3  6.288 219.40                        #2  6.263 223.36
These two made the two quickest runs of the first round, so this looked like it would be a quick, close race.

They were only two thousandths apart at the green and Turner led past the 330-foot marker, but then his front wheel came down and Horne was unchallenged the rest of the way.

Horne will have lane choice against Grimes in the final round.
