By Rick Green





MOHNTON, Pa. - Results of final, round 4 eliminations in Top Alcohol Dragster at the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, 22nd annual Toyo Tires NHRA Nationals:

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
   15 Dan Mercier                             8 Arthur Gallant               
E4   ****WINNER****  0.099  5.358 261.67                     0.088  5.386 270.37
 Prior rounds:
E3    (J Veale     ) 0.064  5.543 261.07      (J Finke     ) 0.088  5.337 271.90
E2    (B Horner    ) 0.096  5.483 263.67                     0.158 10.789  70.80
E1    (K Winward   ) 0.091  5.655 260.71      (D Hedges Jr ) 0.152  5.525 262.28
 Qualified:             #4  5.467 260.01                        #2  5.411 260.41
Mercier has his work cut out for him, even though he comes here with a string of 12 consecutive winning rounds.

Gallant goes in deep and turns off the top bulb, choosing to shorten the race track by that small amount. I think he's taking Mercier pretty darn seriously.

Mercier leaves just slightly after Gallant but immediately made up the difference and lead the entire length of the track. He was ahead by 60 foot and ahead at the finish.

It's a big win for Mercier, his first National Event win.

Our congratulations to the Canadians who've proved to be the very best on this day. Wish I knew how to write that in French.
