- Shane Switzer has had a great start to the weekend pair of 2.43’s and a 2.45.
- Geoff Gill is having a great first outing in the brand new Gill Bettencourt Motorsports TF entry. Geoff posted a great 2.47 in his round one match up with Jeff Janoe.

Final Round Pairing
Shane Sanford Vs. Gary Mink

Notes
- Shane Sanford ran his first 2.4 second pass in qualifying and backed that effort up with a 2.503 in round two of eliminations.
- Dan Allen made two great passes on Thursday. In the first round of eliminations, Dan got out of shape and had to lift still managing Low E.T. of the round by a tenth of a second. In the semi-final round, Dan’s car was rolling through the beams putting him very deeply staged and still ran a 2.503 with a 1.03 60’ time. This pass was easily a mid 2.4 on a normal pass.
- Gary Mink kept his championship hopes alive advancing to the final round versus Sanford.
- The second round match up between Gary Mink and Dan Allen was a great battle with both cars in the low 2.5 range. Where else in the country can you see TA cars in the low 2.5 range side by side???
