Top Fuel Final, Round 4 Eliminations
By David Gerard





POMONA, Calif. - Results of final, round 4 eliminations in Top Fuel at the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, 43nd annual Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals:

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
   12 Bob Vandergriff                         1 Tony Schumacher              
E4                   0.072  4.681 317.19     ****WINNER****  0.075  4.486 328.30
 Prior rounds:

E2    (D Herbert   ) 0.103  4.570 310.63      (M Lucas     ) 0.064  4.501 330.96
E1    (R Fuller    ) 0.049  4.540 331.28      (A Bradshaw  ) 0.069  4.508 325.69
 Qualified:             #6  4.532 333.08                        #1  4.508 320.58
5:26 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 73 degrees, relative humidity 47 percent, barometer 28.93 inches, adjusted altitude 2,329 feet, track temperature 78 degrees.

Vandergriff is 0/11 in final rounds, so far, and Schumacher has to win the race to win the Championship. Both have a lot riding on this race!

WOW! No National Record this time, but Schumacher ruins Rod Fuller's day with a stellar pass for low ET of the meet, 2007 World Finals Champion, 2007 POWERade Top Fuel Champion, his fifth National Championship, with four in a row!

Not a bad day

Vandergriff had a small advantage off the line, but had to watch the black and yellow car drive on by after the sixty foot lights. He made a good pass until the top end, where the engine expires in flames.

That a wrap to the surprising 2007 NHRA Professional Drag Racing season! See you all in February 2008...
