Round One Elimination Results
A bit of controversy ensued after Steve Jackson’s crash in the quarter finals at the scales with some voicing complaints he was even allowed to cross them at all after bumping the wall. The end results is he was and faced off with Mark Woodruff in the semi finals where Woodruff took a hole shot start and running a 4.05 at just 167 MPH and Jackson having trouble and skipping the tires and moving left out of the groove and was quick pulling the chutes to get the car straightened though his crazy day was over. The other pair left in was Tim Slavens and Joe Albrecht with the two having very close reaction times. Slavens put some power in it scoring a 3.90 at 206 for his efforts, it just wasn’t enough to keep Albrecht at bay with the New York based racer running a 3.845 at 201 MPH to set up the final.
