Nitro Bikes Qualifying Notes, Session #2
By Larry Sullivan





EDMONTON, Alb. - Notes from round 2 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 this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run:
Left Lane: Brian Hall Runs 6.830/204.51, Now #2; Best prior run: 6.858/200.77, Was #2
Right Lane: Andy Beauchemin Runs 7.224/158.30, Now #4; Best prior run: 7.104/190.89, Was #4

9:28 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 66 degrees, relative humidity 57 percent, barometer 27.64 inches, adjusted altitude 3,407 feet, track temperature 86 degrees.

Another smooth, straight run by Hall. Beauchemin slowed around half track.


Left Lane: Jody York Runs 7.999/147.28, Now #7; Best prior run: 8.194/173.27, Was #6
Right Lane: Ken Kent Runs 7.007/200.44, Now #4; Best prior run: 10.243/83.50, Was #7

Both made much better runs than their first efforts.

Left Lane: Ron Houniet Runs 7.234/209.59, Now #1; Best prior run: 6.701/211.69, Was #1
Right Lane: Wayne Eastcott No Time, Now #6; Best prior run: 7.162/196.44, Was #6

Eastcott never came out from under the building. Houniet was mis-identified as Dog Vancil in the first round - oops on our part. This time the engine sounded flat and the front wheel was planted early in the run.
