Underdahl races to No. 4 heading into Sunday Eliminations

LAS VEGAS (October 30, 2010) - As trick-or-treaters wandered the pits at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway Saturday looking for candy, Jim Underdahl found the sweet spot on his Suzuki Extended Protection Pro Stock Motorcycle and shot to the No. 4 qualifying position in the NRHA Las Vegas Nationals heading into Sunday's eliminations.

"This bike is so consistent right now, we don't have to really adjust anything and it keeps delivering for us," Underdahl said. "All we have to do is fine-tune to the conditions.

"I'm really happy with where we're at right now heading into tomorrow," he said.

Underdahl is paired with David Hope in the opening stanza. Hope's best time was a 7.044-second shot in the last qualifying round.

"It really doesn't matter who we're paired with, because every time I go to the line I work to stay focused and do things the same, every time.

"I don't look at the ladder, but I am happy that we've got lane choice. There's a lot of good riders in the bottom half of the ladder, so to have any advantage is key. Now we'll just have to see if we get more treats tomorrow," he said.
