Bo Butner ran quickest in the first round of Pro Stock racing and he did so in the wildest quad of the session. Butner ran a 6.939 and advanced to the semifinals alongside Jeff Isbell, who picked up his first round win of his career. Deric Kramer and Fernando Cuadra both turned on the red light, giving Butner and Isbell comfortable victories.
Those wins didn’t come so comfortably for the rest of the Pro Stock racers. Erica Enders made her best run of the weekend (6.651) and it paid off. She’ll get lane choice in a killer quad that features teammate Alex Laughlin and a pair of K.B. Racing stalwarts: Greg Anderson and Jason Line.
Matt Hartford and Chris McGaha also advanced by making their best runs of the weekend. Hartford made the better run and will get to pick his lane before the Texan.
Semifinal quads (lane choice in order):
Bo Butner vs. Matt Hartford vs. Chris McGaha vs. Jeff Isbell
Erica Enders vs. Alex Laughlin vs. Jason Line vs. Greg Anderson
