He's yet to break 56s, but looking aggressive in the first split as he goes through the Start Gate bang on 200kts
Splits are flipping from red to green... 0.36s ahead of the game and he reigns it in in the turns and sprints to the finish gate and YES! He takes the lead!
That's a 0.373s advantage on Velarde and his fastest time all week
Ivanoff is last year's Fort Worth winner, and it was a late break for the podium at the US stop that earned him his race win in 2014
He's looking really quick out there and it's all in the green splits, but he's lost so much time in that last split as he pushes towards the Finish Gate
Ivanoff 57.110 but he's achieved 56.957 in Training 3... he's got the capacity to go bigger and better out there
Back into the track 200kts through the State Gate and he's pushing back, 0.074 faster than Chambliss on the first split
Again it's a touch and go run as the splits go red and back to green... he's just 0.093 faster than Chambliss as he goes for the last push again... and he's losing time in that last section and it's a hiccup as he picks up 2s at the Finish Gate
Ivanoff 57.110, currently 3rd place
Muroya was third in Training and has broken the 55s barrier. He's super cool but aggressive and can take those hard Gs
He's knocking on the door with Chambliss, 0.160s ahead on the split times
Pushing through the Start Gate at 199kts and he's just ahead of his first Run
He's found some really slick lines out there, and he's scrubbing off time with 0.707s faster... now 0.866s faster!
Muroya retains the lead and improves his time with 55.610
Just to put it in perspective, Bonhomme laid down 55.600 in Training 3 so Yoshi is really on point right now. He could well turn out to be Bonhomme's biggest rival at Fort Worth.
COME ON BABY! says Dolderer
He knows what he can do and if he keeps it clean and smooth Dolderer could be on course for a podium tomorrow
He's about 0.4s off Yoshi's pace, and after the big turn he's gained back 0.2s
And that's a good, solid performance from Dolderer! 55.866
He's got another crack at Bonhomme's track record and he's gaining confidence in Fort Worth
Dolderer is really on point in this second half of the track!
He's done it! He's taken the lead from Muroya and 0.026s is the margin that gives Dolderer the first place finish! A new track record for Dolderer with 55.584
A victory roll and yodel from the German right there
Nigel Lamb, last year's World Champion, looking to improve on his Training 1 run at 57.548s
Another kick in the teeth for the Brit, he's picked up 2s at Gate 8
Lamb's time of 59.159 currently lands him in sixth place. Can he move up the timesheets after Run 2?
199kts through the Start Gate, good cadence through the chicane but it's slow and lagging for Lamb... but the buzzer sounds at Gate 8 AGAIN
Lamb is going to be really disappointed. He knows he can do better.
Dolderer first, Muroya second, Chambliss third
McLeod is cleared into the track. He's a little slower with 198.33kts at the Start Gate and seems a little bit off pace to start with, but he's making back time.
Just half a second between McLeod and Dolderer as he pushes through Gate 12
Very tight and he's cleaned it up right at the end of his lap!
That time places McLeod in third currently. He needs to lose just 0.026s to rival Muroya in 2nd
