                  0.597 11.734 132.11  E1 *****WINNER***** 0.619 10.012 147.08
Bautista's Honda blew the hats off several people's heads during the burnout. This car is LOUD! After that he calmly staged and blew past Woodhull before the 100 foot mark.

Congley had something let go at the top end of the track, we're down for an oil cleanup.

  17 R De La Cruz       13.196  88.05  Q    3 Kenny Tran          9.302 151.71
                  0.880 No Time        E1 *****WINNER***** 1.087  9.486 149.62
De La Cruz broke an axle right at the start, went about 100 feet and stopped. Tran recovered from his awful light and drove to the stripe right down the middle of his lane.

   6 Leevon Eisele      10.195 138.91  Q   12 Tri Do             11.076 141.73
                  0.000 No Time        E1 *****WINNER***** 2.284 10.552 138.54
Eisele is a no-show, too much breakage to continue. Do drove it through, but lost lane choice to Tran in round two.

  10 Andrew Tran        10.728 139.10  Q    7 Jensen Oda         10.415 126.72
                  0.000 No Time        E1 *****WINNER***** 0.966 No Time
Tran is another no-show, the sticky racing surface has proved to be quite a challenge to drivetrain components for these temperamental machines. Nice run for Oda, but we didn't get a speed on that run.

  19 Mike Crawford      15.183  55.49  Q    1 Lisa Kubo           9.161 157.48
                  0.000 No Time        E1 *****WINNER***** 1.310 18.506  64.34
Crawford is another casualty - another no-show. Kubo elects to take things easy, and takes a slow drive down Parker Avenue. This famous dragstrip street is named after William H. Parker for you trivia buffs....

  16 James West         11.706 116.77  Q    4 Bruce Mortensen     9.687 151.79
                  0.000 No Time        E1 *****WINNER***** 0.805  9.549 155.49
Mortensen is driving for Jimmy O'Connor - the young man who suffered a broken leg in a testing accident last week.
