Jenkins was a no-show after his unprecedented upside-down slide yesterday. According to Jenkins, that was the first time he'd been upside down in a race car.

Linton's car made a hard move toward the wall and he had to lift.

Winters left on time, Rivenbark was thinking about something else. That worked out for him, however, because Winters shook and his car danced, allowing Rivenbank to go by for the win, running his best ET of the event.

Houck was tardy, then his car shook the tires and he threw in the towel early in the run. Howard got an easy win, but won't have lane choice when he faces Lang in round two.

 1518 Pete Farber                          1277 David Hance                  
E1                  -0.001  4.026 190.27     ****WINNER****  0.063  4.662 136.11

Farber was too eager, by a thousandth, and Hance got the win light on an off-pace run. He will not have lane choice against Rivenbark in round two.

  701 Clint Satterfield                      43 Rickie Smith                 
E1                   0.023  5.621 106.85     ****WINNER****  0.084  3.929 194.86

Smith took his time staging after Satterfield was fully staged, but Satterfield had the better light, by a bunch. However, his car immediately got very loose, fishtailing a few times before he tamed it down and Smith had a big lead by the time they went 60 feet. He will have lane choice against Matos in round two.
