Mickey Thompson True 10.5 racer Terry Barkley had a very scary moment during the first round of qualifying today, when he lost control of his Nova, crossed the center line, and striking the wall in the opposite lane head-on.

The result has forced us to run the rest of today’s event eighth-mile. Officials will look at the track and see what (if anything) can be done before tomorrow.
