During qualifying, we kept waiting for Brian Tuten to bust the juice, but he was testing and making sure the engine was all good. Brian and the BMF Racing crew finally opened the bottle in eliminations, subsequently running an 8.56 at 156 mph to get past George Seeger in Round 1. In Round 2, Brian Mitchell redlit against Brian, sending him to the next round against Jason Geroulo. Though Jason has been running good recently, Brian was able to get past Jason, but it wasn't easy. Jason treed Brian out of his racing suit, and barely made it to the final round against Bob Cook. There, both racers had equally bad reaction times, but Brian's nitrous combination didn't eat itself this time, earning the win with an 8.62 against Bob's faltering 8.86.
