Sunday 1st round over on an insane track. Track is slick and providing wild racing. John and courtny force are gone. Top pro stock driver Allan Johnson upset in round one. Doug Kalitta wins round one but does not have lane choice. A pro mod just went across the lanes and into the wall.

Although track is slick Erica Enders Stevens turned in a massive run. She is much quicker than the others.

A quick update. In a real class act, Cruz Pedregon gave his Wally to Connie Kalitta. Scott Kalitta died at Etwon several years ago and this is an emotional weekend

Andrew Hines filled in on the Pro bike smack talk showdown. He said Michael Ray was talking some serious smack to them at the turn off. Hines and Krawiec changed engines so Hines won with the Krawiec Harley engine.

Cruz Pedregon won the semi despite a big body problem. The crew member did not secure the body correctly and it was three inches higher than it should have been. Pedregon was not sure if the body would fly off during the pass.

Jegs Coughlin said the new Dodge Dart he runs has a bigger front window than the other cars. The bigger window gives him a much better view of the starting tree.
