CECIL, Ga. - Notes from final, round 3 qualifying in Aeromotive Fuel Systems Pro Mod at the 2013 ADRL Tour presented by Speedtech, Hardee's Georgia Drags VII listing lane, driver 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: Clint Satterfield Runs 3.974/197.68, Now #7; Best prior run: 4.004/194.80, Was #8
Right Lane: James W. Linton Jr. Runs 4.104/182.43, Now #9; Best prior run: 4.032/183.42, Was #9
4:32 p.m. Satterfield made his best run of the day and got off the eight-car bump spot. Linton failed to improve and stayed outside the field.
Left Lane: Kevin Rivenbark Runs 3.959/187.39, Now #3; Best prior run: 3.921/186.87, Was #3
Right Lane: T.J. Tindle Runs 3.986/188.62, Now #8; Best prior run: 3.980/186.61, Was #8
Both cars made good runs, but neither improved and Tindle stayed on the bump spot.
Left Lane: Jimmy Keen Runs 3.948/191.19, Now #1; Best prior run: 3.916/190.97, Was #1
Right Lane: Adam Flamholc Runs 9.552/51.10, Now #4; Best prior run: 3.935/192.25, Was #4
Keen's orange race car advertises (what else?) orange juice.
Flamholc lost traction immediately. Keen returned to his round one form and closed with a strong run.
Left Lane: Jamie Hancock Runs 3.977/189.55, Now #5; Best prior run: 3.952/190.62, Was #5
Right Lane: Todd Howard Runs 4.168/170.04, Now #10; Best prior run: 4.052/175.73, Was #10
Both were on good runs, but Howard's Mustang fell off the pace on the top end and he's not in the field.
Left Lane: Larry Higginbottham Runs 6.661/68.53, Now #12; Best prior run: 4.093/178.12, Was #12
Right Lane: Travis Harvey Runs 4.049/182.33, Now #6; Best prior run: 3.954/187.99, Was #6
There are three cars left - this pair and the current #2 qualifier - so the eliminations field size will be eight cars.
Higginbotham shook hard. Harvey made a clean pass, but slower than his first.
Right Lane: Raymond Matos Runs 3.935/189.76, Now #2; Best prior run: 3.917/189.12, Was #2
Last car. Nice pass.
