The Extreme Motorsports Eclipse was out to break into the 8s. The car already ran numerous 9.1s and with just a little more power this could be the first uni-body in the 8-second club.
By day's end, the pilot of the Speedy Gonzalez Datsun swore he would drag the rear bumper on the ground. He kept his word-big time.
Vinny Ten was out to break into the 7s, but a torque converter problem kept his car from running up to par. He was able to qualify in the number one spot with an 8.2-second e.t.
The Wicked Pictures-sponsored CRX has been revamped. Owner Jarrod Silvers gave Westside Motorsport's Roger Scalise a shot at the reins. Scalise piloted the CRX to a new personal record of 11.36. The car was all over the track; we expect it will be knocking on the 10-second door soon.
