I guess this really is like the new Pro Stock! Only 1 Mopar in the field.

..... there's 3. Turk, Pritchet and Welch who just made into the show this morning.

I was hoping for better results from Allen Johnson. I hope they stick with it and get the hang of the blower soon.

Missed Welch but Turk is broken so the #17 camaro is coming in as an alternate.. so 2.

Those guys can't hang with the GM power this weekend.

We'll see when eliminations start.... Welch wasn't considered a threat last weekend. He won.... And Holbrook will be right there.

Interesting seeing Pro Mod's Dan Stevenson was one of the entrants.

Me too....

Interesting first round. Aaron Stanfield takes out Barton, Welch goes up in smoke against Bell, Leonard Libersher takes out Holbrook. Pritchett over Condon.

I know some like the warped ladder but then you end up with your #1 and 2 qualifiers gone before 2nd round. Sure #14 could takeout #2 but it's much harder to do. Now #8 has it as easy as #1 first round as both take on someone 8 spots back. Also #16 doesn't have it any harder than #9 as both are 8 spots back there too. #16 didn't earn an easier opponent but #9 did.

Is this a spinoff of the "everyone gets a trophy" movement?
And it's absolutely the only thing about FS/XX I don't love. This class is cool!

#1 was gonna shake the tires and #2 was gonna go red no matter who was in the other lane.

You don't think both of them "just might not have been looking over their shoulders" a little more racing tougher opponents?

Yes going from a .15 advantage to a .10 advantage may not seem like much, but when races are won by .001 they do know how much or little cushion they have. It can creep into the tune and into the head.
