The results from the first of four qualifying session were viewed, via Live Timing feed, for the SCCA's 2006 Runoffs. Former DSR standout, Mathew DiRenzo, raised a few eyebrows when his top S2 time bettered multiple S2 National champion John Fergus by almost 2 seconds.

Stohr WF1 (1:34.003), back to third place John Bender in a West WR 1000 (1:35.679). David Rigon driving the lone factory Gloria B6S posted a 1:36.824 for forth, followed by Steve Shelton in another Stohr WF1 (1:37.209) in fifth.
