Nice, quick pass by Hardee to go to the top spot, the first more than .500 under his index. Williams was barely under his, should be quicker next time out.

Right Lane: Jeff Adkinson No Time, Now #6 H/AA Index: 8.92

Last pair, only ten Competition Eliminator cars showing up for today's qualifying session.

Johnson's car kept trying to go to the right and was well right of the groove at the stripe. Sharp's car went right down the middle and he took the top spot away from Houghtaling by a couple hundredths.
