Starting off the second day of qualifying with his best run securing Xray’s first Top 10 time, the Czech driver topped the second qualifier ahead of Ryan Cavalieri and David Ronnefalk.

Running earlier in Heat 10, the round starting with Heat 6 of 14, Jeremy Kortz would be one of the big benefactors ending up fourth ahead of other Heat 1 runners Cody King, Dakotah Phend, Christopher Svensson and Darren Bloomfield. Fastest in the opening three qualifiers but having to run on a completely wet track Ty Tessmann, who is in Heat 3, would end up 37th.
