With the extra weight imposed on the modular cars, Tim Matherly changed to a 4.88 gear in an attempt to equalize the extra heft on his Two-Valve Real Street car. He qualified second behind Bruce Hemminger with a 9.70/140-mph pass, but he left a couple weeks early against Bruce in the semis. We don't know why, but Tim seems overly joyous after he's redlit at a race. We don't know if that's because he can finally relax or start chowing down on a pastry. Either way, we chastised him profusely for the error, so he should have his act together the rest of the year.
