 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   8 Allen Johnson       7.003 194.72  Q    9 Darrell Alderman    7.008 195.73
 *****WINNER***** 0.442  7.022 194.86  E1                  0.458  7.013 195.73
12:25 PM After a live TV timeout, the "factory hotrods" take their turn on center stage. Ironically the two Dodges in the field meet in the first round. It was a close race, won on a holeshot by "the other Dodge," the margin of victory = 0.007 seconds (approximately 2 feet).

 *****WINNER***** 0.455  6.960 195.65  E1                  0.415  7.007 195.96
Martino got a great light and a huge holeshot, but "the Kid" runs low ET of the weekend (so far) and wins by a margin of victory = 0.007 seconds (approximately 2 feet).

   6 Troy Coughlin       6.996 196.64  Q   11 Rickie Smith        7.010 195.79
 *****WINNER***** 0.477  6.964 196.36  E1                  0.461  7.004 195.65

   5 Mark Pawuk          6.986 195.96  Q   12 Bruce Allen         7.013 195.48
 *****WINNER***** 0.525  6.932 195.82  E1                  0.475  7.029 194.63
After a horrible first run, Pawuk was consistently among the quickest in each session, while Allen was in the middle of the pack. But today, with cooler temperatures and overcast skies, Pawuk opened the door with a sub-par light and had to run low ET of the weekend to get the win by a margin of victory = 0.047 seconds (approximately 13 feet).

   4 Warren Johnson      6.986 197.13  Q   13 George Marnell      7.015 195.25
                  0.000 No Time        E1 *****WINNER***** 0.973  7.013 195.14
Marnell got a present for his 50th birthday (today), WJ breaking on the burnout. As he staged, WJ's crew members were removing the hood on the Goodwrench Firebird. Marnell goes to round two, losing lane choice to Pawuk.

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   2 Ron Krisher         6.982 196.76  Q   15 Jim Yates           7.020 195.65
 *****WINNER***** 0.433  6.978 196.16  E1                  0.452  6.993 196.44
Not a match one expects to see in round one, Yates needing a last-session clutch run to squeak into the field. The race was as close as you'd expect with these two, Krisher with a better light and a better run to win by a margin of victory = 0.034 seconds (approximately 10 feet). But he loses lane choice to Stevens in round two.

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   3 Kurt Johnson        6.986 197.39  Q   14 Brad Jeter          7.020 196.27
 *****WINNER***** 0.466  6.953 196.90  E1                  0.412  7.016 195.82
These two put on a brief staging duel, then KJ rolled in to end that nonsense. Jeter nailed him to the tree, but KJ had the last laugh, winning by a margin of victory = 0.009 seconds (approximately 3 feet). He also earns lane choice against Troy Coughlin in round two.

   1 Mark Osborne        6.976 196.39  Q   16 Jeg Coughlin        7.020 195.59
                  0.478  6.993 196.47  E1 *****WINNER***** 0.433  7.017 195.14
Jeg stole this one, Osborne finally going in first after a staging duel and Jeg with the holeshot win by a margin of victory = 0.021 seconds (approximately 6 feet). He also wins lane choice against Allen Johnson in round two.
