5:36 p.m. It looks like the track's "teeth" have gained another victim. He launched, the car shuddered, then he pulled to the side, stopping around the 330-foot mark. Burch's run wasn't a thing of beauty either, with early tire shake.

Beattie ran his Supercar Camaro as a Top Sportsman since he didn't have a second driver. He did not answer the staging call.

We've got a bunch of members of the Teets family here this weekend, three in Top Sportsman, one in Top Dragster.

Stewart was perfect on the tree, took too much stripe.

Pitts made his first lap today. This was strange. Mills was supposed to leave first, but was very late, and Pitts still went red.
