 *****WINNER***** 0.432  6.910 199.37  E1                  0.488  7.231 156.53
12:11 PM These two have raced many times in Competition Eliminator (Sportsman) competition, but this was their first meeting in Pro Stock. Bo gets his first-ever Pro Stock round win when he beat Krisher at the tree and then Krisher got out of the groove and skated around, losing the round and any chance of moving into second in the points.

   7 Rickie Smith        6.896 199.08  Q   10 Darrell Alderman    6.911 198.61

Smith made a last-second lane change. Neither driver likes to stage first, so a staging duels was expected, but Smith went right in and Alderman was a bit slow responding. Clean start, Alderman with the edge, but Smith's Camaro went right down the groove while Alderman's Dodge also got out of the groove and skated around.

Pawuk's car turned hard left on the launch and, combined with Jeter's great light and solid run, that was too much, Jeter winning by a margin of victory = 0.059 seconds (approximately 17 feet).

Fiftieth match between these two, WJ ahead 35-15 in round wins. WJ left first and ran away, in the "bad lane," Yates getting out of the groove and forced to lift on the top end. With low ET of the round so far, WJ has lane choice against Jeter next round.
