Nitro Bikes Qualifying Notes, Session #1
By Larry Sullivan





EDMONTON, Alb. - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Nitro Bikes at the 2005 Hooters IHRA Drag Racing Series, Third Annual Western RV Rocky Mountain Nationals presented by TORCO Race Fuels listing lane, rider name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:
Left Lane: Mike Scott Runs 6.996/179.33, Now #1
Right Lane: Ross Cuthbertson No Time, Now #2

6:12 p.m. Cuthbertson lists his occupation as "Trapper." He got a rude present here, the engine letting go with a big flash of flame as soon as he hit the throttle. Meanwhile, Scott made a reasonable run, the front wheel in the air most of the way. Cuthbertson was obviously shaken by the explosion, but did not appear to suffer any serious injuries.

Left Lane: Andy Beauchemin Runs 7.104/190.89, Now #2
Right Lane: Jody York Runs 8.194/173.27, Now #3

Beauchemin carried the front wheel to about half track. York's was firmly planted all the way down the track.

Left Lane: Wayne Eastcott Runs 7.162/196.44, Now #4
Right Lane: Brian Hall Runs 6.858/200.77, Now #1

Two full passes, Hall easily the quickest of the group so far.

Left Lane: Ken Kent Runs 10.243/83.50, Now #7
Right Lane: Doug Vancil Runs 6.701/211.69, Now #1

Vancil shows why he is one of the top in the world, resetting both ends of the track record book on an effortless-looking run. Kent had problems early in the run and cruised on through.
