After a marathon of qualifying over the last two days here at MIR, it’s time to start whittling the fields down and crown some champions today. We were met by showers this morning that pushed back our start time in order to get the track dry and prepared for racing. We’ve got a small chance of showers and storms throughout the day, but the hope is the precipitation passes and we can get this weekends festivities completed on time. Stay tuned to StreetLegalTV throughout the day as we bring you coverage from here in Maryland.
Special thanks to our event sponsor SCT Performance. Check out their great line of tuning products at www.sctflash.com.

In Super Street, Kevin Mitchell did his job and then some with a perfect .000 reaction time while Tony Nesbitt threw away a crushing 6.79 to 7.17 difference with an -.035 redlight. In the Xtreme Street semis, Bob Kurgan and Dan Kroll will square off on one side of the ladder, while Jamie Stanton and Phil smith do likewise in the other half.
Chuck Demory Jr. took another crooked route off the starting line, allowing Skip Baskin to advance with a 7.38 in Nostalgia Pro Street. Jeff Colletta used a 7.26 to down Jim Jarrett and his 7.44, and Joe Bucaro nailed down a 7.30 at 183 to advance to the semis.

In the battle of heavyweights, Robbie Blankenship took down Charlie Booze Jr., who took a .01 advantage out of the gate, 8.44 to a trailing 8.49. In the final, he’ll meet Don Baskin, who staged his Chevy II and backed out to hope in his Mean Street car.
