By Larry Sullivan





CLERMONT, Ind. - Results of round 3 eliminations in Pro Modified at the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, 54th annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals:

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
   44 Mike Castellana                        43 Rickie Smith                 
E3   ****WINNER****  0.079  6.109 236.01                     0.061  9.788  82.50
 Prior rounds:
E2    (M Knowles   ) 0.055  6.055 237.96      (K Kuhns     ) 0.063  6.045 236.26
E1    (T Coughlin  ) 0.092  6.047 237.25      (S Ray       ) 0.053  9.273  90.50
 Qualified:             #7  6.036 237.34                        #6  6.035 235.19
3:33 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 91 degrees, relative humidity 28 percent, barometer 29.16 inches, adjusted altitude 3,509 feet, track temperature 128 degrees.

The final round will be nitrous versus supercharger, the question in front of us now is "Which drivers?"

Smith grabbed the early lead on a holeshot, but his car shook early in the run and Castellana sailed away for the win - but he had his hands full on the top end, the car getting very loose.


 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
    1 Joshua Hernandez                        6 Tim Tindle                   
E3   ****WINNER****  0.036  6.050 238.72                     0.073  6.035 238.34

E1    (R Commisso  ) 0.031  6.010 240.47      (H Laird     ) 0.018  6.024 237.92

Hernandez has made a couple of crushing runs this weekend, while Tindle has been the picture of consistency. Who'd a thunk it? Hernandez won on a holeshot. Tindle managed to narrow the gap, but could not reel him in. Joshua Hernandez's incremental margins: 60ft(0.040), 330 ft(0.030), 660ft(0.024), 1,000ft(0.021). MOV: 0.0221 seconds (approximately 8 feet). Hernandez will have lane choice against Castellana in the final round.
