   5 Shawn Bowen         5.553 252.28  Q    4 Rick Henkelman      5.551 253.99
   (B Reichert  ) 0.459  5.642 247.93  E1   (D Hummel    ) 0.513  5.671 245.09

7:17 PM Bowen was off the starting line, got out of the groove and had to fight to get the dragster straightened out. Henkelman was mixing up cylinders at the beginning of the run, picked them up but ran out of room.
  
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed

This was a mismatch on paper....and it works out that way on the track. Hirata could almost bracket race with this car. He has lane choice over Bowen in the next round.
  
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   3 Melanie Troxel      5.476 257.19  Q    6 Keith Stark         5.560 258.62

 *****WINNER***** 0.596  5.478 258.12  E2                        No Time
