“Once I saw a few pairs of Pro Stock go down in that second session, I knew there was a good chance we’d keep the No. 1 for raceday,” Kramer explained.  “First round is always just [Michael] Hiner and I racing against ourselves,” he added. “We try not to worry about who is the other lane when we race and just focus on our lane. We focus on doing the best we can to turn on the win light each round.”
