X-Treme Pro Stock Qualifying Notes, Session #3
By Larry Sullivan





BUDDS CREEK, Md. - Notes from round 3 qualifying in X-Treme Pro Stock at the 2013 X-Treme Drag Racing League, Mayhem at the Creek 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: Kevin Bealko Runs 4.081/176.88, Now #2; Best prior run: 7.826/57.38, Was #5
Right Lane: Dean Goforth Runs 4.129/174.91, Now #5; Best prior run: 11.705/40.52, Was #6

9:12 p.m. Neither of these usually-quick drivers has gotten down the track in two tries today.

Both m ade full runs here, the difference in a little tail-wagging by Goforth's car in the middle of the run. He handled it nicely without lifting.

Left Lane: Matt Bertsch Runs 8.453/31.21, Now #3; Best prior run: 4.092/177.14, Was #3
Right Lane: Lester Cooper Runs 5.214/95.85, Now #6; Best prior run: 4.175/172.98, Was #6

Both cars made strong launches, then both shook and it got very quiet. Cooper cruised through, but Bertsch broke something in the rear end of the car and he coasted to a stop about 1,000 feet down the track.

Left Lane: John Deflorian Jr. Runs 4.049/178.05, Now #1; Best prior run: 4.066/178.10, Was #1
Right Lane: Cary Goforth Runs 4.296/143.67, Now #4; Best prior run: 4.100/176.77, Was #4

Deflorian shows why he leads the points with a strong showing here, straight down the groove. Goforth was on and off the throttle a couple times.

John Deflorian Jr.'s incremental times: 60ft-0.978 sec., 330ft-2.664.
