These are the cars formerly known as "Thunderbolts," now called "Pro Nostalgia." It's a 7.50 indexed Funny Car group.
No data yet on the left-lane driver, looks like a '67 Camaro flopper.
unknown driver broke out, Mageau was on the safe side of the index.
Left Lane: Brent Harris Runs 7.861/170.06/7.861, Now #0 TB Index: 0.00
Right Lane: Joey Steckler Runs 7.515/182.23/7.515, Now #0 TB Index: 0.00
Steckler has a great shot at the #1 qualifier spot with that run in his bright-yellow '69 Corvette.
Left Lane: Sherrie Bodnarchuk No Time, Now #0 TB Index: 0.00
Right Lane: Cory Kincaid No Time, Now #0 PN Index: 7.50
Bodnarchuk's Superbird died at the end of the burnout and had to be pushed back before Kincaid could stage his '77 Trans Am. He hit the throttle and the RPMs went way up, something in the driveline letting go, and the car just moved a few inches.
Left Lane: Darrell Webb No Time, Now #0 TB Index: 0.00
Right Lane: Dave Robinson Runs 7.989/167.74/0.489, Now #0 PN Index: 7.50
Apparently Webb's '70 Nova would not fire (we cannot see the head of the staging lanes from here) and Robinson made a solo pass. The engine never did come up into the power band on this run.
Left Lane: Darrell Webb Runs 7.747/177.79/0.247, Now #0 TB Index: 7.50
Right Lane: Eddy Plaizier Runs 7.530/178.85/0.030, Now #0 TB Index: 7.50
Plaizier moves into the second spot (unofficially) on that one.
Left Lane: Tony Coopress Runs 7.362/188.78/7.362, Now #0 TB Index: 0.00
Coopress shook and took a hard look at the left wall before getting very far down the track. He still broke out by over a tenth off a second.
