Pro Stock Round 2 Eliminations
By Jonathan Adams





JOLIET, Ill. - Results of round 2 eliminations in Pro Stock at the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, Third annual CARQUEST Auto Parts NHRA Nationals:

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
   50 Bruce Allen                             4 Warren Johnson
E2   ****WINNER****  0.017  6.801 201.70                     0.091  6.753 204.45
 Prior rounds:
E1    (A Johnson   ) 0.015  6.777 202.27      (S Schmidt   ) 0.011  6.784 203.77
 Qualified:            #11  6.779 203.34                        #3  6.760 204.88
1:45 p.m. Allen comes in with lane choice, and both drivers were sharp on the Tree in round one, so this should be good.

And it is. WJ was late, and Allen moved around a bit, but WJ ran out of race track.

Bruce Allen's incremental margins: 60ft(0.090), 330 ft(0.082), 660ft(0.060), 1,000ft(0.042). MOV: 0.0261 seconds (approximately 8 feet).

  357 Larry Morgan                            2 Jim Yates
E2   ****WINNER****  0.021  6.750 203.95                     0.039  6.772 203.06
 Prior rounds:
E1    (J Line      ) 0.055  6.780 204.11      (G Wilson    ) 0.020  6.769 202.67
 Qualified:             #4  6.762 204.26                        #5  6.770 203.34
Morgan won last round on a holeshot and Yates almost lost on a holeshot (even though he had a great .020 light) so keep an eye on reaction time in this one.

After a 30 second staging battle, Morgan drills the Tree and outruns Yates.

    1 Jeg Coughlin                            6 Kurt Johnson
E2   ****WINNER****  0.012  6.748 202.82                     0.019  6.796 204.01
 Prior rounds:
E1    (R Krisher   ) 0.017  6.723 203.40      (T Coughlin  ) 0.024  6.769 204.17
 Qualified:             #2  6.747 203.34                       #10  6.778 203.95
Before pulling into the water, Coughlin's crew had the hood off. Apparently the car backfired when Jeg started it. Must not be a problem, as he does a nice burnout.

This one's all Jeg, as leaves on KJ and outruns him the whole way down. Jeg will have lane choice over Allen in the semi's.
