Robbie Blankenship qualified behind Charlie Booze in Hot Street at zMax with an 8.76 at 154 mph. As is always the case, no one in Hot Street was an odds-on favorite, and every race is won and lost at the tree. Case in point, Robbie's first-round opponent Jim Sutterlin really took a nap at the tree with a 0.708 reaction time, while Robbie blasted out with a 0.441 light. Jim's time didn't match Robbie's, but the race was over right out of the gate. In Round 2, Max Gross had a heartbreaking -0.004 red light. In the final, Robbie once again had a stellar light with a 0.417 reaction time, while his opponent Don Bowles was just a tad off that number with a 0.478 reaction time. However, the damage was done, and Don couldn't catch Robbie, even with an 8.86 to Robbie's 8.88.
