With all the players in ready
to go, the signature event of the night proceeded to fill the
Beech Bend air with nitro. Because of the much lower car count

they will do their fire-up on Sunday.

to lead off the program firing his Hawaiian with Larry Reyes

The first push start fuel car
down was the Hilton's AA/FA and they just kept on commin'.
