11:59 AM Good drag race, but Shields is on his game this weekend and won handily, even though his car was out of the groove for part of the run.

   4 Brandon Henkelman   5.508 258.57  Q    5 Brian Hough         5.519 253.90

   3 Paul Jones          5.502 253.47  Q    6 Mike Strasburg      5.547 254.95

Strasburg's excellent reaction time made his win a lot easier than the numbers would suggest.

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
  15 Darryl Hitchman     5.702 231.48  Q    7 David Wells         5.555 249.72
   (M Hentges   ) 0.495  6.160 169.55  E1   (B Reichert  ) 0.467  5.587 252.95

And another five-fifty winning run to close the round, Hitchman's car sluggish off the line and never really picking it up. Wells loses lane choice to Strasburg. The four winning elapsed times this round were between 5.513 and 5.539, amazing!
