By Rick Green

MILLINGTON, Tenn. - Notes from final, round 4 qualifying in Pro Stock at the 14th annual AutoZone NHRA Nationals presented by Pennzoil listing lane, driver name, elapsed time/top speed this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run:

Left Lane: Kenny Koretsky Runs 7.019/196.70, Now #30; Best prior run: 7.083/195.51, Was #32
Right Lane: Mike Weinle Runs 7.138/194.02, Now #33; Best prior run: 7.205/192.85, Was #33

It is sunny out and the temperature is up around 84 degrees, humidity is 55% and the barometer is 30.07 inches. There was some movement in the Truck category, but I don't look for a lot of changes here.

Left Lane: Danny Coffman Runs 7.087/194.91, Now #31; Best prior run: 7.019/196.10, Was #31
Right Lane: Brad Klein Runs 7.114/194.21, Now #32; Best prior run: 7.053/194.46, Was #32

Right Lane: Richie Stevens Runs 7.033/195.87, Now #29; Best prior run: 7.008/196.47, Was #29

Gaines was loose early and never got it to hook up, getting way out of shape at half track. He did a great job saving it.

Left Lane: John Nobile Runs 7.042/196.39, Now #26; Best prior run: 6.991/197.80, Was #26
Right Lane: Greg Thomas Runs 7.483/147.50, Now #28; Best prior run: 7.007/196.59, Was #28

Thomas made a quick move toward the centerline and reeled it back in, but then around half track got real loose and out of the groove and close to the wall.

Left Lane: Tony Gillig Runs 7.012/196.67, Now #23; Best prior run: 6.963/196.93, Was #23
Right Lane: Barry Grant Runs 20.612/37.83, Now #25; Best prior run: 6.982/196.33, Was #25

Right Lane: Rickie Smith Runs 6.954/198.47, Now #16; Best prior run: 6.947/198.50, Was #16

Franks is the only one that can knock out Smith and he does not do it.
