SAN ANTONIO - Results of round 1 eliminations in Amsoil Prostalgia Nitro Funny Car at the 2013 Nitro Jam Series, IHRA San Antonio Nitro Jam presented by CarSafe & Good Vibrations Motorsports Day One:

Mr. Explosive destroyed his car last year and his son worked all Winter to get this car ready to run. He did a great job, Sanders finishing as the runner-up at the March Meet.

Hale was first off the line, but Sanders caught him before the 330-foot marker and never looked back.

Mark Sanders' incremental times: 60ft-1.014 sec., 330ft-2.643, 660ft-3.915/193.63 mph, 1,000ft-4.999.
