ROWE EARNS FIRST PRO MOD NO. 1 QUALIFIER; WINS FIRST ROUND OF ELIMINATIONS

MADISON, Ill. -- Danny Rowe held onto his No.1 qualifying position on Saturday and started eliminations from the top position for the first time in his NHRA Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series career. The 47 year old Rowe got his car down the track at 5.945-seconds at 241.76 mph in qualifying to take the top spot.

Rowe was able to parlay that qualifying position into a first round win over the No. 16 qualifier, Mike Castellana. Rowe posted a run of 5.925-seconds at 245.76 mph to the losing run of Castellana.

"First round is nerve racking for everybody and you want to get it out of the way," said Rowe." "We knew that as long as we left with him or left close with him we were going to be able to run with him and that is what happening and we are really excited about it."

Eliminations will continue on Sunday.
