Bo Butner

Bo Butner stormed to the top of the qualifying sheet, ending the Elite Motorsports parade with a 6.648 elapsed time. That bettered the next-quickest pass by nearly two-hundredths of a second. 

Nobody from the Elite camp had an answer in the second session, as Rodger Brogdon left before the tree activated, Jeg Coughlin Jr. slowed, and Alex Laughlin did the same. Matt Hartford moved up to the No. 5 position with a 6.675 but collided with Alan Prusiensky's car at the top end of the race track while trying to make the turn off. 

That wasn't all the drama from the second qualifying session. Chris McGaha performed his burnout when flames burst from beneath his Camaro. He quickly stopped the car and got out of the vehicle while the Safety Safari extinguished the fire. He wasn't sure what caused the fire at the time of the burnout.
