 1130 John Stanley                         2695 Bubba Stanton                
E1                   0.032  3.797 193.72     ****WINNER****  0.024  3.726 207.60

They were not far apart at the green and Stanley closed the gap at half track when Stanton had to quickly slap the throttle to tame the car down, but the pedal job worked and then Stanley's car nosed over and Stanton was able to widen the gap from there to the stripe.

Bubba Stanton's incremental margins: 60ft(0.027), 330 ft(0.014). MOV: 0.0790 seconds (approximately 22 feet).

E1                   0.727  4.023 190.54     ****WINNER****  0.053  3.966 203.00

Holt was so late that it looked like Snider redlighted. That was a tough break because Snider was there for the taking, way off his qualifying pace.

Snider will not have lane choice when he faces Martin in round two.
