Humphreys Unhappy after Opening-round Setback to Warren Johnson at Las Vegas

Justin  Humphreys was not in a good mood after his opening-round loss to
Warren Johnson  Sunday in the SummitRacing.com Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas
Motor  Speedway.  And he was frustrated, too.

"The track conditions got us again," he said of the unpredictable racing surface.

Humphreys and Warren Johnson were the second pair of Pro Stock cars to run and the RaceRedi Motorsports Pontiac GXP was the second of four successive cars to experience traction problems in the right lane. Humphreys had a big advantage off the starting line (.056-seconds to .095) but the car's wiggle gave Johnson all the advantage he needed. Johnson was timed in 6.811 seconds at 203.98 mph to Humphreys' 7.197 at 174.10.

"We just haven't been able to make good runs," added Humphreys, who began eliminations from the No. 11 position. "But we were able to stay in the top 10."

Humphreys is 10th with 200 points.
