Spacer

 

 

After showers overnight eliminations got underway under cloudy skies and cool temps. Picking up where Saturday left off, the delayed first round of floppers opened with Jason Rupert and Dan Horan Jr.

 

 

 

 

Only one word could describe the first race, ugly. Horan was shut off and Rupert was basically done at the hit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rupert took the win with a 18.992 at 49.63. Kiss lane choice goodbye.

Out next was Rian Konno who only lives to drive this car and Jeff Arend who has driven most anything with four wheels.

 

 

 

For the holeshot win of the meet, Konno's 0.016 drilled Arend's 0.141 reaction time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Try as he did, Arend couldn't reel in Konno who took the win with a 5.848 at 241.89 to a quicker and faster 5.752 at 256.89.

At the strip it was Romine with a 5.813 at 232.63 to Sanders shut off 6.536 at 156.92.

At the stripe it was Hodgson with a 5.701 at 257.33. Boychuck clicked it at the 1000' mark to a 6.000 at 216.34.

The final pair of the session to fill up the round two ladder were Mike Halstead in the greatly improved Code Red car and Cory Lee in his new ride for 2018.

This was all Halstead with a 5.892 at 253.28.
