4:21 p.m. Manners gets the bye run because only seven cars decided to play today. If he'd had an opponent, this would be a foul and he would lose. Instead, he only loses lane choice by running a five. Mike Manners' incremental times: 60ft-0.965 sec., 330ft-2.570, 660ft-3.883/183.72 mph, 1,000ft-5.016.
