He then came back to meet up with Ryan Mangus, Rialto, Calif., in Stock Eliminator taking the hole shot again with a .013 second reaction time, and was near perfect at the strip posting a 10.672 second lap on his 10.67 dial giving him the win and the double up.  This was the second time Biondo has doubled up, having done so at National Trail Raceway, Columbus, Ohio, in 2005.
