Humphreys Falls Two-thousandths Shy of Round Win
Justin Humphreys Loses Close First-round Race

Two-thousandths of a second separated  Justin Humphreys from a coveted
first-round win Sunday in the Lucas Oil  SuperNationals at Raceway Park . . . and
the race against Larry Morgan was as  close as the deciding margin indicates.

Humphreys' RaceRedi Dodge left the line one-thousandth of a second after Morgan, who got the win light another thousandth ahead of his rival with a time of 6.653 seconds to a 6.654. The time was Humphreys' second-quickest of the weekend.

"It was a great race," said Humphreys, "and we knew it would  be.  We ran
within three-thousandths of each other during qualifying and  had the same
qualifying time (6.627 seconds).  We had three different lead  changes in the
quarter-mile.  We didn't know who won.  It was about as  close as you can get.

"We are starting to get this Dodge figured out. Now we are looking forward to going to Norwalk (Ohio, site of the Summit Racing Equipment Nationals, June 27-29)."

Humphreys is now 12th in POWERade Series with 391 points. Only seven races remain before the top 10 drivers continue in the Countdown to One championship chase.
