HOUSTON - Pro Stock Round 2 Eliminations
By Larry Sullivan





BAYTOWN, Texas - Results of round 2 eliminations in Pro Stock at the 3rd annual Matco Tools SuperNationals presented by Racing Champions:
  
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
  16 Mike Thomas         6.925 198.00  Q    9 Jim Yates           6.909 198.76
   (B Allen     ) 0.441  6.888 199.64  E1   (V Gaines    ) 0.346  6.922 200.38
 *****WINNER***** 0.442  6.901 198.67  E2                  0.495  6.895 199.37
2:07 PM It's a little warmer and the track is a little looser, so the performance numbers may fall off a bit this round.

Thomas wins on a holeshot, the margin of victory = 0.047 seconds (approximately 14 feet).
  
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
  13 Troy Coughlin       6.920 199.29  Q   12 Rickie Smith        6.918 198.47
   (M Edwards   ) 0.468  6.859 200.50  E1   (K Johnson   ) 0.484  6.886 199.82
                  0.548  6.882 198.41  E2 *****WINNER***** 0.516  6.909 199.37
Smith won this one on a staging duel, refusing to go in first until Troy finally went in, then delaying as long as he thought the starter would give him. It worked, the margin of victory = 0.005 seconds (approximately 17 inches), but he loses lane choice to Thomas in the semifinals.
  
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
  15 Jeg Coughlin        6.921 199.37  Q    7 Mark Pawuk          6.900 198.55

 *****WINNER***** 0.432  6.866 199.94  E2                  0.497  6.903 199.79
No staging duel here, Jeg nailed Pawuk to the tree and then drove away from him.

   3 Warren Johnson      6.886 200.95  Q    6 Tom Martino         6.892 199.88
   (J Nobile    ) 0.515  6.865 202.36  E1   (A Johnson   ) 0.499  6.848 201.13
                  0.507  6.890 200.47  E2 *****WINNER***** 0.486  6.855 200.83
A good drag race, Martino with the holeshot and then outrunning WJ, something we don't see very often. Martino will have lane choice against Jeg in the semifinals.
