ROCKINGHAM, NC-IHRA Pro Stock racer Wally Stroupe failed to qualify Saturday in his Trim Parts Restoration Parts Monte Carlo. The Kings Mountain, North Carolina driver skated around during the final session, only mustering a best of 7.779 in front of the hometown fans at the Holley Spring Nationals at Rockingham Dragway.

"We wanted to qualify for this race in a bad way," explained Stroupe. "I made a judgement decision to lift on that second qualifying attempt. Unfortunately for us, the rains set in and we didn't get a third shot. This is a disappointing experience for us, but we'll rebound from it."

The former Pro Mod driver is not discouraged and will be back at the Inaugural Mopar Parts Canadian Nationals in Grand Bend, Ontario. Look for the Trim Parts Restoration Parts Monte Carlo to be in the thick of things in Canada.
