   4 Jeff Gracia         7.509 178.66  Q    5 Scott Perin         7.514 178.95
   (D Spitzer   ) 0.470  7.511 178.57  E1   (J Lingenfelt) 0.444  7.530 178.83
 *****WINNER***** 0.454  7.509 179.06  E2                  0.457  7.518 179.37
Two refrigerator-white trucks squared off here, and it was a very close drag race, just three thousandths apart at the starting line and the margin of victory = 0.012 seconds (approximately 3 feet). That gives Gracia lane choice against Mike Coughlin in the semifinals.

   7 Bob Panella Jr      7.518 179.04  Q    2 Randy Daniels       7.490 180.38
   (S Farr      ) 0.436  7.509 178.76  E1   (R Jones     ) 0.538  7.511 179.33
 *****WINNER***** 0.429  7.478 178.90  E2                  0.490  8.950 109.83
This is a matchup we've seen all year. This time Panella was ready and Daniels was late, then Daniels' truck got out of shape and he had to lift. Panella's truck made a big move at half track, but he drove through it for low ET of the weekend.

   3 Greg Stanfield      7.508 180.09  Q    6 Larry Seay          7.514 178.14
   (C Greco     ) 0.449  7.486 180.09  E1   (D Eaton     ) 0.452  7.495 178.83
 *****WINNER***** 0.436  7.479 180.14  E2                  0.464  7.498 179.21
Another good drag race, Stanfield with a much better light and a slightly better run to win by a margin of victory = 0.047 seconds (approximately 12 feet). But he loses lane choice to Panella by 0.001 seconds.
