Friday - Qualifying Report

The Auto Trader Easter Thunderball, the first Drag Racing meeting of the 2008 season is underway. The car classes ran qualifying sessions throughout the day in sunny but windy conditions before racing was halted by rain shortly before 4pm. Unfortunately it was too windy for the bikes, Fuel Altereds and Pro Mods to run the full quarter mile, so their first qualifying sessions are held back until tomorrow.

The Pro Shootout Top Fuel Dragsters and Funny Cars will be out on the track tomorrow and the Live Action Arena will host the Monster Trucks, Motocross and more.
