12:02 PM A plane flew overhead a few minutes ago trailing a large banner - "NHRA: Save Pro Stock Truck" No word on who paid for the open message... Patterson had the horsepower to catch Coughlin, and did it early, Coughlin's yellow truck was slow off the start, just 1.141 to the 60-foot timers.

   3 Jeff Gracia         7.486 180.00  Q   14 Craig Eaton         7.523 179.88
 *****WINNER***** 0.446  7.582 178.47  E1                  0.474  7.635 178.80
Eaton's new truck couldn't get by the Panella powered machine of Jeff Gracia. Gracia will fact Daniels in round two.

   1 Mike Coughlin       7.461 180.62  Q   16 Scott Perin         7.527 178.95
 *****WINNER***** 0.454  7.529 179.59  E1                  0.418  7.598 178.26
Perin will need to chop the tree down to have a chance. The driver did a good job, the motor just didn't have enough horsepower to get past the Jegs machine. Mike will race Patterson next round.
