The first round of pro class qualifying is in the record books at the IHRA Nitro Jam Mardi Gras Nationals at State Capitol Dragway in Port Allen, Louisiana. The IHRA was forced to postpone yesterday’s qualifying sessions due to rain and wet conditions.

Paul Romine (AMSOIL Nitro Funny Car presented by Aeromotive), John Montecalvo (U.S. Bounty Hunters Pro Stock) and Lyle Newton (Nitro Harley) currently are the No. 1 Qualifiers in their classes. Next on the schedule is the second round of pro qualifying, followed by eliminations.

The IHRA Nitro Jam Mardi Gras Nationals has attracted entries from as far away as Canada and Aruba.

Two riders from Louisiana are entered in the pro classes: Rocky Jackson (Youngsville, Louisiana) and Randal Andras (Amelia, Louisiana) – both in the Nitro Harley class.

Bill Doucet of Lawtell, Louisiana, is No. 1 Qualifier in the local Outlaw Pro Mod class (4.109 sec./163.78 mph).
