By David Gerard





POMONA, Calif. - Results of round 3 eliminations in Top Fuel at the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, 43nd annual Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals:

Oh, WOW! A rare red light for Todd and Vandergriff gets a free pass to the finals! Two good passes, but all for naught.

This run could determine the 2007 championship.

Not this time. Bernstein wins the RT contest, but Schumacher keeps his hopes alive, passing the Bud car before sixty feet and continually opening the lead. A great pass into the finals with lane choice.
