Pair two of the Friday afternoon
session featured Jim Murphy who was a contender in a 3 way points
race,and Rick McGee in the Tedford & McGee "Overtime
Special" from near by Exeter.
Murphy has been experimenting
with injector scoops... function over form. He would end up running
with no scoop at all.
Murphy served notice that he
and Roland were here to play hard ball carding a stout 5.626
at a whopping 264.18. McGee banged the blower before the lights
still ran a respectful 5.807 at 234.70.
For the Saturday morning
session Murphy was paired with Tyler Hilton.
Murphy's 5.67 at 231.28 did not
improve on his earlier 5.626 at 264.18. If you judge by the speed
on this pass Murphy didn't have a full pull, data showed it probably
would have run a 5.58 or .59.
The third and final session went
off around noon on Saturday. Murphy was once again matched with
Murphy had no
issues at all carding a 5.63 at 254.23 which was a tick slower
than his previous 5.626 at 264.18 (top speed of the meet) and
ended #2 qualifier.
