Weather Delays Bristol X-DRL Eliminations

“I’ll be sore tomorrow. When I hit the (right) wall, I think my foot hit the throttle and that just shot it back,” Goforth said. “The car left good and was going straight. I was right in the middle of pulling second gear, and just that quick it got out of control.

“The safety guys were there almost as soon as it happened. They were there quick and did a great job. They were very professional.”

Todd Moyer ran a career-best 3.89 at 201 mph to finish as the top qualifier in Precision Turbo & Engine Pro Turbo. He advanced to the finals in the class, and he will meet Jose Gonzalez on Sunday. Gonzalez ran as quick as a 3.90 on Saturday, beating Mike Murillo with that time to set up a championship round race with Moyer.

Dan Stevenson finished as the No. 1 qualifier in X-treme Pro Mod, running a 3.923 to head the four-car field. Mickey Thompson Top Sportsman and Top Dragster have eight-car qualifying ladders, with Ronnie Davis (4.112) and Kevin Fisher (4.251) remaining the No. 1 qualifiers in Mickey Thompson Top Sportsman and Top Dragster, respectively. Ryan Tolley finished as the top qualifier in Pro Junior Dragster.
