Pro Extreme Motorcycle Qualifying Notes, Session #1
By Larry Sullivan

ROCKINGHAM, N.C. - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Pro Extreme Motorcycle at the 2013 ADRL Tour presented by Speedtech, Dragpalooza IX listing lane, rider name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:
Left Lane: Lamond Payne Runs 4.426/160.16, Now #2
Right Lane: Monte Campbell Runs 4.372/161.65, Now #1

10:30 a.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 63 degrees, relative humidity 31 percent, barometer 29.82 inches, adjusted altitude 647 feet, track temperature 71 degrees.

Neither rider had any visible problems, but those times won't stay at the top of the list.

Left Lane: Dave Norris Runs 4.098/170.36, Now #1
Right Lane: Not on File Runs 4.129/175.00, Now #2

No data on file yet for #12. Based on the numbers, this isn't their first rodeo. Nice run and top speed so far. Norris wasn't quite as fast, but he was quicker and is #1 for now.

Left Lane: Ronald Procopio Runs 4.141/170.95, Now #3
Right Lane: Jack Young Runs 4.281/164.35, Now #4

Good run by Procopio to move into third, for now. Young made a good run, but a tenth off the front-runners.

Left Lane: Terry Schweigert Runs 4.160/168.87, Now #4
Right Lane: Ryan Schnitz Runs 5.732/74.27, Now #8

Good run for Schweigert. Schnitz had some problems early in the run and slowed before half track.

Left Lane: Chuck Wilburn Runs 5.643/102.75, Now #9
Right Lane: John Collins Runs 4.350/162.84, Now #6

Wilburn's bike went to the right and he had to slow, hanging way off the left side of the Hayabusa, to stay in his own lane. Collins' run looked clean.

Left Lane: Eran Pielert Runs 4.564/157.37, Now #9
Right Lane: Jeremy Teasley Runs 5.680/102.78, Now #11

Teasley was doing the same as Wilburn, but he was in the right lane and trying to stay off the wall. Pielert went right down the track, but he's well off the competitive pace.

Left Lane: Darian Guillory Runs 4.133/171.08, Now #4
Right Lane: Ashley Owens Runs 4.085/173.01, Now #1

Bearing in mind that the motorcycles are carrying over 100 pounds more than last year, Owens' run was surprising. Low ET, top speed. Guillory made a nice run, but was well back at the stripe.

Ashley Owens' incremental times: 60ft-1.032 sec., 330ft-2.682.

Left Lane: Eric McKinney Runs 4.078/173.23, Now #1

McKinney accepted Owens' challenge and took both low ET and top speed away on a nice run.

Eric McKinney's incremental times: 60ft-1.032 sec., 330ft-2.679.

Left Lane: Kim Morrell Runs 4.166/168.66, Now #8

Morrell made a good-looking run, barely made the top half of the field.

Left Lane: Not on File Runs 4.233/167.80, Now #9

No tech card yet for #77. Clean run, best of the bottom half.

Left Lane: Tyler Wilson Runs 4.227/169.27, Now #9

Clean run to close out the round.
