BOISE, Idaho -- Monday Comp Eliminator racer Jeff Lane and Nostalgia Top Fuel pilot Mike McLennan made their way to the winner's circle at Firebird Raceway. Unfortunately, they were the only categories to be completed. Despite the best efforts of NHRA and Firebird Raceway officials, the final rounds of the 39th Annual NAPA Auto Parts Ignitor presented by Dan Wiebold Ford, a round of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, will be finished up on Monday.

Lane, a resident of North Bend, Ore., qualified his '07 Cobalt in the No. 4 spot and took out No. 1 qualifier Adam Bowdish, Oregon City, Ore., in round two of eliminations. In the final, he squared off against Arvada, Colo., racer Clint Neff and his '23 roadster. The pair left the line with identical reaction times but Neff slowed giving Lane the win.

McLennan, a resident of Oakley, Calif., qualified No. 2 with a 6.068-second, 244.43 mph pass. In the final he ran 6.775 seconds at 190.15 mph against Jim Murphy, Santa Rosa, Calif., who was disqualified when he crossed the center line.

Racers in all other categories will continue eliminations Monday starting at 9 a.m.

Northwest division racers head to Mission, B.C. for the next NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event. Mission Raceway Park will play host May 22-24.
