Fields Set at Bandimere Speedway



MORRISON, Colo. -- In the final rounds of qualifying at Bandimere Speedway, Federal-Mogul Dragster driver David Wells and Federal-Mogul Funny Car driver Kirk Williams maintained their No. 1 positions to take the low qualifier honors.

Wells of Lemars, Iowa, made the quarter-mile run in 5.670 seconds at 252.28 mph to put him in the pole position. Wells has also put himself in a better position to reclaim the division championship that he lost to Denver's Bruce Bowler last year. At the end of qualifying, Bowler found himself on the outside in at the eight-car field. In Federal-Mogul Funny Car, Glenwood, Mont., resident Williams made a 6.015-second 236.75-mph pass to put him at the top of his category.

In the other classes, all of yesterday's low qualifiers kept their No. 1 positions as well. Clint Sallee of Glendive, Mont. in Comp Eliminator, Randall Klein of Lincoln, Neb., in Super Stock and Marty Woffard of Gore, Okla., in Stock each kept their competitors at bay. Eliminations begin Sunday at 9 a.m. Gates at Bandimere Speedway open at 8 a.m. Federal-Mogul Dragsters and Funny Cars run at noon. For more information call the track, (303) 697-4870.
