ROCKINGHAM, N.C. - Results of round 2 eliminations in Pro Nitrous at the 2013 ADRL Tour presented by Speedtech, Dragpalooza IX:
Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed 949 Steve Jackson 369 John Decerbo E2 ****WINNER**** 0.040 4.043 179.23 0.085 4.834 NS Prior rounds: E1 (J HALL ) 0.092 3.913 187.08 (P STOKEN ) 0.057 4.079 190.38 Qualified: #1 3.782 196.04 #5 3.926 186.922:39 p.m. This had an ugly ending. Jackson had a nice starting line advantage and was pulling away when Decerbo's car got loose and made a hard left turn. It was similar to Shannon Jenkins' accident yesterday, the car overturning when the air got under the car, then sliding into the opposite wall with a hard impact and a flash fire. Unlike Jenkins' incident, the car came back across the track and stopped near the scoreboards, so the safety crew from the starting line was able to reach him a little quicker.
what seemed like a long time (it always does) the word came from the top end that Decerbo was out of the car and "okay."
Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed 933 Jason Harris 44 Mike Castellana E2 0.024 4.264 141.61 ****WINNER**** 0.051 3.888 193.43 Prior rounds: E1 (R WEATHERFOR) 0.026 3.870 192.69 (J LAURITA ) 0.070 4.136 166.03 Qualified: #3 3.877 192.63 #7 3.933 192.143:28 p.m. The accident left a long trail of oil, so it took a bit of work by the track crew before racing could resume.
Harris had a nice holeshot, but that did not last long once Castellana got going. Harris slowed (could not see why).
have lane choice against Jackson in the final round.
