He’s hoping he didn’t use it all up.
Scruggs, the two-time world champion in Pro Extreme, had more bad luck this past weekend at the U.S. Drags in Virginia, breaking a quill shaft before the first round of eliminations.
That bad luck threw away a run that was, quite simply, remarkable. Scruggs qualified No. 1 with a 3.602, the quickest run in the class in 2012 and incredible considering the toasty track conditions. It also put him .07 ahead of No. 2 qualifier Mick Snyder.
“The track temperature was around 113-114 degrees and when you consider all of those variables and the conditions, that was probably the best run we’ve ever made,” Scruggs said about his 3.60. “It was a good run and everything kind of came together there.”
Unfortunately, that good fortune did not last and Scruggs was finished much earlier than anyone had anticipated. Scruggs is still second in the points standings behind his teammate, Snyder, but he’s now just concentrating on
“We’re not counting points right now,” Scruggs said. “We’ve learned some stuff these last few races and I think we’ll be stronger the rest of the year, but we’re not worried about points. We just want to go to every race and try to go rounds and win.”
