Bell looked very comfortable up on the cushion. The track is a lot different tonight and could be different Saturday. McIntosh will be in the top five and fighting for podium on Saturday, I'm convinced.
Chase looked a little shaky at times, but that's because he was running the difficult line. 6th to 4th will get him into a qualifier with a decent route to the A-Main. It's impressive that he went forward at all, hoping he continues to get comfortable and picks up more speed.
Tough break early for Chase, he may have had enough speed to hold onto a transfer if he didn't have to start at the back, but it would have been close. As it is, he'll have a hard time advancing far on Saturday from an F.
