Maryland PDRA qualifying order

In his first PDRA Pro Nitrous Motorcycle appearance of the season, motorcycle drag racing veteran Paul Gast rocketed to the top of the qualifying order aboard his Fast By Fast Suzuki at the Fulton Racing Engines North vs. South Shootout presented by Penske Racing Shocks at Maryland International Raceway. His 4.012 at 172.72 put him on top of the largest Pro Nitrous Motorcycle field of the season.

Past world champion Chris Garner-Jones rode his TT Jones Racing Suzuki to a 4.024 at 175.41 to qualify No. 2. Ashley Owens claimed the third spot with his 4.041 at 174.59 on his McKinney Motorsports Suzuki.

A severe thunderstorm moved into the Maryland International Raceway area Friday evening after just a few pairs of cars went down the track in WS Construction Pro Boost presented by P2 Contracting and Ty-Drive’s third session. Racing was put on hold for the evening. Pro Boost will complete its third session on Saturday. Liberty’s Gears Extreme Pro Stock presented by AED Competition will also get to run a third session on Saturday.

The four pro classes without a bump spot – M&M Transmission Pro 632, Drag 965 Pro Nitrous Motorcycle, Menscer Motorsports Pro Street presented by Afco, and Afco Super Street presented by Menscer Motorsports – will go into eliminations on Saturday after two completed sessions.
