Pro Stock Round 3 Eliminations
By Dan Bennett





CLERMONT, Ind. - Results of round 3 eliminations in Pro Stock at the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, 53rd annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals:

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed

3:43 p.m. It's one of those "can't possibly be true" factoids, but the three remaining cars in Pro Stock competition are the three racers who a guy named Greg Anderson defeated while he was winning the last three US Nationals.

Anderson has a 22-13 record when he races Kurt. He finally has lane choice so I wonder if that's going to change the go-for-the-throat approach we've seen so far today. No, there doesn't seem to be any falloff. He leaves first and is ahead at every interval. He's going to the finals one more time.

    3 Dave Connolly                         107 Kenny Koretsky               
E3   ****WINNER****  0.036  6.697 206.04                     0.066  6.799 203.49
 Prior rounds:
E2    (J Humphreys ) 0.033  6.704 206.39      (J Yates     ) 0.015  7.379 170.23
E1    (J Line      ) 0.027  6.648 206.64      (L Morgan    ) 0.060  6.763 205.76
 Qualified:             #3  6.659 206.32                       #10  6.678 206.29
Koretsky takes his time going in and once again has to be tickling the timeout setting. It doesn't matter much since Connolly drills him just like he's famous for. After the starting line advantage, Dave was gaining about 2 hundredths at every interval.

We will have a replay of the 2006 finals.
