Speed F/C 28 RON CAPPS 0.492 6.587 165.65 F/C 700 RANDY ANDERSON 0.536 5.899 220.04W Both Capps and Anderson loose traction! Anderson recovers, Capps doesn't! Randy advances F/C 5 CHUCK ETCHELLS 0.535 5.136 299.00W F/C 720 CORY LEE 0.522 5.193 293.82 Cory Lee gets the slight advantage but doesn't have enough power to fend off Etchells. GREAT Drag Race!!! single F/C 1 JOHN FORCE 0.531 5.053 260.64W Force, on a bye run due to a Okazaki no show, drops cylinders on this sub-par run. Alittle top end smoke F/C 305 DEAN SKUZA 0.499 5.130 294.11 F/C 3 CRUZ PEDREGON 0.437 5.079 301.81W Cruz deep-stages which apparently distracted Dean who was late off the line. Nice strong run from Pedregon

F/C    5  CHUCK ETCHELLS      0.525          5.031  299.20W 
   Real nice run for both CHUCKY and Randy. Etchells        
   passed Randy at about the 330 mark.                      
F/C    3  CRUZ PEDREGON       0.505          4.994  303.64W 
F/C    1  JOHN FORCE          0.460          8.875   91.18  
   Force goes up in smoke about 100 feet out. Cruz makes    
   a very impressive run. Another loss for Force :(

   Cruz had the BIG holeshot but hazed the tires near the   
   finish line allowing Chuck to pass. Etchells 1st win!!!
