EDMONTON, Alb. - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Thunderbolts at the 2005 Hooters IHRA Drag Racing Series, Third Annual Western RV Rocky Mountain Nationals presented by TORCO Race Fuels listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, amount over/under index, and position in order following run, class and class index:
Left Lane: Brent Harris No Time, Now #0 TB Index: 7.50
6:05 p.m. "Plastic fantastics," running against a 7.50 index. Harris launched, turned right, briefly crossed the centerline, then continued the run - but it won't count.
Left Lane: Not on File Runs 7.558/183.57/0.058, Now #0 TB Index: 7.50
Right Lane: Sherrie Bodnarchuk Runs 7.937/145.64/0.437 TB Index: 7.50
No info yet on the left-lane car or driver, but he (or she) went to the top spot on a nice run. Bodnarchuk's scaled-down Super Bird was a bit loose early in the run.
