12:50 PM This may only be an exhibition, but these guys are serious. Every one of them wants to be able to say they won the U.S. Nationals!

   2 Thomas Patterson    6.215 226.77  Q    7 Quain Stott         6.297 222.55

Patterson's reaction wasn't as bad as the numbers make it appear - his car sat there and spun the rear tires before it moved an inch. By the time he got started, Stott was long gone. Stott has lane choice against Hood in the semifinals.

                  0.481  9.178  99.31  E1 *****WINNER***** 0.530  6.550 178.00
Hahn's car made a hard move to the left on the launch. Hahn fought it back, but the car continued past center and headed for the centerline, so he shut it down. Rowe was on a very strong pass to half track, then the car slowed. He races Harper in round two, Harper with lane choice.
