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

  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!
