GRAND BEND - Sunoco Pro Stock Qualifying Notes, Session #2
By Larry Sullivan

GRAND BEND, Ont. - Notes from round 2 qualifying in Sunoco Pro Stock at the Inaugural Mopar Parts Canadian Nationals presented by Castrol listing lane, driver name, elapsed time/top speed this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run:

Left Lane: John Montecalvo Runs 8.991/119.87, Now #1; Best prior run: 6.686/207.18, Was #1
Right Lane: Tom Lee Runs 6.722/206.32, Now #8; Best prior run: 8.412/108.32, Was #19

11:55 AM Montecalvo's Chevy fishtailed violently as he left the concrete pad and he called it off.

Left Lane: Floyd Cheek Runs 6.683/206.94, Now #2; Best prior run: 6.733/205.85, Was #9
Right Lane: Jerry Yeoman Runs 6.647/207.56, Now #1; Best prior run: 6.688/207.18, Was #2

Two very nice runs, the two quickest runs of the event so far.

Left Lane: Wally Stroupe Runs 13.254/81.05, Now #21; Best prior run: 13.244/63.49, Was #21
Right Lane: Rocky Watford Runs 8.522/100.40, Now #19; Best prior run: 7.416/150.77, Was #19

Stroupe's Monte Carlo got very squirrely on the launch and he had to shut it down. Watford's handling problems were at mid track.

Left Lane: Chuck Demory Runs 6.842/202.70, Now #16; Best prior run: 6.915/198.15, Was #16
Right Lane: Carl Baker Runs 6.737/205.99, Now #7; Best prior run: 6.702/205.43, Was #7

Demory improves, but stays on the bubble.

Left Lane: Steve Spiess Runs 6.660/208.81, Now #2; Best prior run: 6.704/207.03, Was #8
Right Lane: Gene Wilson Runs 6.693/207.94, Now #7; Best prior run: 6.740/205.99, Was #10

Spiess posts our best speed of the event on a very loose run, the car fishtailing slightly all the way through the run.

Left Lane: Jon Yoak Runs 6.678/208.67, Now #3; Best prior run: 6.774/206.04, Was #11
Right Lane: John Konigshofer Runs 6.719/207.03, Now #6; Best prior run: 6.690/207.03, Was #5

Another big speed, this one by Yoak, to leapfrog Konigshofer in the order.

Left Lane: Angelo Alesci Runs 6.753/205.33, Now #12; Best prior run: 27.889/22.32, Was #22
Right Lane: Dwayne Rice Runs 6.633/207.70, Now #1; Best prior run: 6.691/206.65, Was #7

Rice rockets to the top of the heap on a great run, the car on rails. Alesci bumps Demory, putting Miller on the bump at 6.826.

Left Lane: David Jenkins Runs 6.811/205.71, Now #16; Best prior run: 6.811/201.88, Was #15
Right Lane: Ron Miller Runs 6.625/208.42, Now #1; Best prior run: 6.826/196.80, Was #16

Miller goes from the bubble to the pole on a good run. Jenkins gets pushed down to the bump spot after matching his Friday run.

Left Lane: Tim Bell Runs 6.996/197.23, Now #19; Best prior run: 7.056/192.51, Was #18
Right Lane: Chris Holbrook Runs 6.862/200.80, Now #18; Best prior run: 7.072/200.49, Was #19

Holbrook comes close, but his current ride isn't up to what he's used to running.

Left Lane: Bob Holzer Runs 12.533/68.14, Now #15; Best prior run: 6.802/203.80, Was #15
Right Lane: Tim Nabors Runs 6.766/204.45, Now #14; Best prior run: 6.793/204.03, Was #14

Holzer's car veered left on the launch, very close to the wall.

Left Lane: Anthony Paone Runs 6.938/200.08, Now #19; Best prior run: 11.144/79.43, Was #21
Right Lane: Jason Collins Runs 6.697/207.85, Now #10; Best prior run: 6.700/207.46, Was #10

Paone's car bobbed and weaved its way down the track on a very crooked run.
