Humphreys gives it his best shot in first round; Kurt Johnson gets the round win at Indy

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 1, 2008 -- Justin Humphreys knew he needed a good reaction time if he was to challenge Kurt Johnson for the opening-round Pro Stock win in Monday's U.S. Nationals, and he tried. But he came up a little short and drew a red light.

"Every time you run Kurt, you know you have to be on your game," said Humphreys, driver of the RaceRedi Dodge. "It's a duel and you have to do whatever it takes. We were happy to qualify for the U.S. Nationals. A lot of cars went home early."

Johnson got the win in 6.664 seconds, 207.82 mph.
