   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
 *****WINNER***** 0.431  5.573 248.71  E2                  0.480  5.541 250.83
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
   1 Dave Hirata         5.409 261.47  Q    9 Troy Buff           5.656 251.67

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
   (B McCornack ) 0.508  5.501 254.38  E1   (S Howard    ) 0.479  5.618 256.11
 *****WINNER***** 0.596  5.478 258.12  E2                        No Time      
Stark can't make the call and Troxel gets the solo shot.

   7 Michael Gunderson   5.591 253.85  Q   15 Gene Snow           5.838 220.26
