Mike Salinas

Charlotte champ Mike Salinas, who missed the race in Atlanta two weeks ago for business reasons, continued to go rounds as he powered to low e.t. of the opening round, a 3.813, to dispatch underdog Cameron Ferre.

Steve Torrence, winner of the last two events on the tour, also extended his winning streak to eight straight rounds with a 3.845 conquest of Todd Paton.

Meanwhile, Scott Palmer, who didn’t win a round in the season’s first four races, has now won in the first round at the last four events after besting tire-smoking Doug Kalitta with his best run of meet, a 3.86. After watching Kalitta smoke the tires in the left lane ahead of them, Mike Kloeber moved low qualifier Clay Millican to the right lane, from which he powered to a 3.814.

You can find a complete recap of round one here.

Second-round pairings (lane choice first): Clay Millican vs. Billy Torrence; Steve Torrence vs. Scott Palmer; Mike Salinas vs. Austin Prock; Antron Brown vs. Brittany Force
