   5 Mike Dunn           4.624 306.67  Q    4 Gary Scelzi         4.606 313.44

 *****WINNER***** 0.479  4.724 301.94  E2                  0.492  8.137  97.50
Under partly cloudy skies with the tempeture around 84 degrees, humidity is 55% and the barometer is 30.02 inches. Dunn was out the gate started to haze the tires around 330 feet and probably grabbed the brake as he is well known for doing and just hazed them all the way through the quarter-mile. Scelzi was up in smoke by 100 feet and pedaled it and when he did it threw the blower belt off and that was the end of his day.

Kalitta with a slight starting line advantage and never looked back with a good looking pass. Running consistent high 4.60's. Herbert lost traction around half track and pedaled it, but then smoked them again to end his day.
