(August 11, 2001) Marble Falls, TX --- Temperatures soared over 100 degrees and the wind kicked up on Lake Marble Falls during the final round of qualifying for the 10th annual IHBA Lakefest 2001 in Marble Falls, Texas today leading to Dwayne Patton, Ted Faggart, Ken Singleton, and Randy Johnson grabbing the top qualifying spots.

"We had a pretty good run this afternoon. The first run today was off because I wasn't on top of my game. This afternoon the crew really came through and I drove a lot better. Qualifying here in Marble Falls is tough because this is a unique track. The head wind makes you a little cautious. It is more challenging but I love racing here," said Top Alcohol Flat racer Ken Singleton.

Top Fuel number one qualifier Dwayne Patton added, "We are out of the test mode. We came to win. We tried a new prop on that last run and improved but we are here to win so that was not a test run."

Top Alcohol Hydro number one qualifier Ted Faggart got a wild ride when the wind blew him crooked when he releases the holding rope.

"As soon as I started the wind blew me to the right. I had to cock it to the left more than usual. Once I got up to power I was going right down the middle. It held the middle and made a good pass. It should have been quicker and I expect tomorrow to be a better day," summarized Faggart.
