   4 Dave Hirata         5.633 255.00  Q    5 Russ Lindert        5.634 248.11
   (R Bayne     ) 0.503  5.525 261.12  E1   (G Ward      ) 0.510  5.605 249.67
 *****WINNER***** 0.603  5.461 263.72  E2                  0.476  6.290 157.10
Hirata figured to benefit more from the improved conditions than the other, blown cars, the nitro-burners definitely not liking the hot, humid weather the past few days. Hirata was very late, but his car ran more like we've come to expect from that team, with a ferocious top end and a huge speed.

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   1 Rick Santos         5.527 256.94  Q    8 Darren Nicholson    5.679 249.72
   (B Reichert  ) 0.444  5.453 257.73  E1   (B McCornack ) 0.524  5.624 249.35
 *****WINNER***** 0.437  5.463 256.99  E2                  0.411  5.558 251.63
Good drag race, Nicholson doing all he could with a great light and a good run, but Santos is on another plane of existence, with a very good light of his own and a great run, the margin of victory = 0.069 seconds (approximately 25 feet). However, Santos loses lane choice to Hirata by 0.002 seconds.

   (J Bohr      ) 0.627  5.561 251.20  E1   (S Bowen     ) 0.471  5.659 251.11
                  0.561  5.592 253.80  E2 *****WINNER***** 0.455  5.619 250.46
Holeshot win for Howard, Ormsby just plain late on this one, the Margin of victory = 0.079 seconds (approximately 29 feet). Howard goes to the semifinals, losing lane choice to Meyer.
