 I usually start in 2nd with a push for this reason. 1st is totally useless. And as the 1-2 shifter arm broke (several times after welding) on a qualifying pass and we didn't have time to try to fix it, I started in 3rd (with bigger push) on the return run. Missed new record by about .5mph.  Sad The way my week went. Qualified 3 times, couldn't back up any of them by about the same mph.
