LAS VEGAS 2 - Pro Stock Bike Qualifying Notes, Final Session
By Darryl Jackman





LAS VEGAS - Notes from final, round 4 qualifying in Pro Stock Bike at the Inaugural AC Delco Las Vegas NHRA Nationals listing lane, rider 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: Clarence Markham Runs 7.620/177.44, Now #24; Best prior run: 7.756/177.42, Was #25

3:44 PM Clarence Markham opens the session with a single. Todd Doege is on the bump and it takes a 7.473 to get in. Markham is not going to make it.

Left Lane: Chris Reuter Runs 7.526/176.47, Now #21; Best prior run: 7.536/171.93, Was #22

No help for Reuter. His best run of the weekend isn't enough to make the field.

Left Lane: Brian DeLong Runs 7.596/176.07, Now #22; Best prior run: 7.531/178.19, Was #22
Right Lane: Mike Kovacevich Runs 7.555/173.67, Now #23; Best prior run: 7.587/172.83, Was #23

Both riders need a miracle....or a tenth. They get neither.

Left Lane: Greg Underdahl Runs 7.559/177.07, Now #19; Best prior run: 7.522/179.40, Was #19
Right Lane: Scott Lewis Runs 7.591/176.49, Now #20; Best prior run: 7.522/175.50, Was #20

Both riders are to slow to qualify and they'll be packing up.

Left Lane: Jay Matthews Runs 7.574/174.55, Now #18; Best prior run: 7.506/177.04, Was #18
Right Lane: Todd Doege Runs 7.428/176.88, Now #14; Best prior run: 7.474/180.33, Was #16

Doege gets himself off the bubble with a nice pass. Matthews will have to wait for another time.

Left Lane: Joe DeSantis Runs 7.520/179.83, Now #17; Best prior run: 7.475/177.42, Was #17
Right Lane: Sam Hurwitz Runs 7.599/175.34, Now #16; Best prior run: 7.436/178.90, Was #16

DeSantis has to lift once and his weekend is finished. Hurwitz remains on the bump.

Left Lane: Fred Camarena Runs 7.474/177.49, Now #15; Best prior run: 7.432/175.96, Was #15
Right Lane: Blaine Hale Runs 7.509/170.55, Now #13; Best prior run: 7.428/178.38, Was #13

Both riders fail to improve.

Left Lane: Steve Johnson Runs 7.467/178.54, Now #12; Best prior run: 7.406/177.93, Was #12
Right Lane: Ron Ayers Runs 7.472/173.92, Now #11; Best prior run: 7.398/179.28, Was #11

Both riders slow. Moving up is real tough in this session. There's more sun on the track and the temperatures up a bit.

Left Lane: Thomas Miceli Runs 7.476/178.07, Now #8; Best prior run: 7.383/174.91, Was #8
Right Lane: Craig Treble Runs 7.413/780.00, Now #10; Best prior run: 7.391/179.85, Was #10

Miceli slows a tenth and Treble loses .02.

Left Lane: Reggie Showers Runs 7.498/179.04, Now #7; Best prior run: 7.377/181.54, Was #7
Right Lane: Geno Scali Runs 7.568/176.93, Now #9; Best prior run: 7.387/180.16, Was #9

Slower and slower.

Left Lane: GT Tonglet Runs 7.442/177.79, Now #4; Best prior run: 7.336/176.67, Was #4
Right Lane: Mike Berry Runs 7.421/176.21, Now #6; Best prior run: 7.367/180.91, Was #6

This session is just plain slower. The cars might be in trouble.

Left Lane: Matt Hines Runs 7.376/180.74, Now #2; Best prior run: 7.310/182.77, Was #2
Right Lane: Antron Brown Runs 7.383/180.67, Now #5; Best prior run: 7.355/178.83, Was #5

This pair loses less than the others.

Left Lane: Angelle Savoie Runs 7.337/180.36, Now #1; Best prior run: 7.289/182.35, Was #1
Right Lane: Shawn Gann Runs 7.394/176.47, Now #3; Best prior run: 7.311/186.38, Was #3

This is the final pair of the session and they follow form. No improvement. The only real move was Doege that moved from the bump to the fourteen spot in the field. Here come the cars and the unqualified Warren Johnson.
