6:02 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 67 degrees, relative humidity 38 percent, barometer 29.77 inches, adjusted altitude 1,113 feet, track temperature 81 degrees.

Rogers's team appeared to be unhappy with the burnoutm and when the light turned green, he just drove the car down to the other end. Ferro tried to improve enough to get into the to half (for lane choice), but tire shake ended any hope of dong that.


Left Lane: Todd Veney Runs 9.379/91.42, Now #2; Best prior run: 5.598/259.31, Was #2
Right Lane: Kris Hool Runs 5.634/260.26, Now #1; Best prior run: 5.598/261.62, Was #1

These drivers had identical ETs in the first session and Veney came out in the second session, trying to get ahead of Hool for #1, but was unable to get through early tire shake.

Veney's car started chattering the tires as he passed the tree and he lifted. Hool made a clean run, but failed to improve.
