   5 Bob Newberry        5.799 249.39  Q    1 Tony Bartone        5.682 252.47

Newberry made the burnout and when they returned to the line a problem was found and he was forced to shut off. Bartone was told he had a single and proceeded to roll in to deep and lighted both lights before he had the engine rpm up. He waited after the green, which was why the light was so bad, and brought the rpm up. The patience brings him lane choice in the final over Manzo.
