It's deja vu all over again

Columbus, OH - Friday Pit Note:
Friday Qualifying at Pontiac Excitement Nationals was shortened due to rain showers, allowing only one of the two scheduled Pro Stock Bike Qualifying runs planned for Friday at National Trail Raceway. This is the fourth race in a row that Friday qualifying has been held to a single session due to poor weather, leaving only Saturdays two planned runs available to improve on qualifying positions for Sunday morning eliminations.

Craig Treble used the single run to qualify in the 15th position, running a 7.402 @ 181.69 on the Matco Tools Suzuki. "We really hit the track hard, much harder than we wanted to and that pulled our motor down out of the power band. We knew immediately what would have worked better for us but we didn't get a chance to get back out there and improve on our first run."

If the Ohio rain continues Saturday, qualifying will stand as it does now which will put Treble opposite Shawn Gann for round one of eliminations.
