  13 Rickie Smith        6.889 198.93  Q    4 Richie Stevens      6.861 198.52
 *****WINNER***** 0.442  6.911 198.67  E1                  0.464  6.894 198.17
THese two have only met once before this year, Stevens winning that time. "Tricky Rickie" evens the score with a holeshot, the margin of victory = 0.005 seconds (approximately 17 inches). He also wins lane choice against the other holeshot winner this round, Morgan.

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
  14 Robert Patrick      6.911 199.61  Q    3 Warren Johnson      6.855 200.71
                  0.520  7.480 145.03  E1 *****WINNER***** 0.474  6.920 199.35
THis was the first meeting between these two this season. Patrick's Mustang was second off the starting line and got very loose just past half track, forcing Patrick to lift. WJ was off-pace, but advances, losing lane choice to Yates in round two.

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
  15 Allen Johnson       6.912 197.65  Q    2 Darrell Alderman    6.853 199.17
                  0.450  6.942 197.57  E1 *****WINNER***** 0.466  6.887 199.05
AJ won both prior meetings between these two this year, but got only a small starting line advantage this time out and it wasn't enough against the Mopar Hemi, the margin of victory = 0.039 seconds (approximately 11 feet). But Alderman loses lane choice to Jeg Coughlin, by 0.001 seconds.

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
  16 Scott Geoffrion     6.915 198.64  Q    1 Ron Krisher         6.846 200.56
                  0.474  6.962 198.06  E1 *****WINNER***** 0.485  6.898 200.26
Final pair. Geoffrion gets a small starting line advantage, not nearly enough to hold off Krisher, who is once again running true to his dominant form earlier this season, the margin of victory = 0.053 seconds (approximately 15 feet). But he's not quick enough to have lane choice against Kurt Johnson next round.
