Top Fuel Round 3 Eliminations
By Keith Burgan





CLERMONT, Ind. - Results of round 3 eliminations in Top Fuel at the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, 49th annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals:

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
    6 Darrell Russell                         2 Kenny Bernstein
E3   ****WINNER****  0.069  4.612 315.64                     0.086  5.280 193.52
 Prior rounds:
E2    (D Baca      ) 0.086  4.579 319.82      (L Dixon Jr  ) 0.089  5.477 239.10
E1    (P Romine    ) 0.058  4.623 317.12      (S Weis      ) 0.166  4.594 321.81
 Qualified:             #9  4.568 320.36                        #4  4.518 325.45
Russell finally gets lane choice and crew chief Wayne Dupuy moves over to the left lane. Russell has been a winner here in TAD and is looking for a chance to visit the winner's circle again. Russell is out first and never headed as Bernstein again smokes the tires at the 400 foot mark. A dropped cylinder slowed Russell but he is at least in the money round.

    3 Tony Schumacher                       319 Scott Kalitta
E3   ****WINNER****  0.044  4.523 326.16                     0.071  4.549 327.82

The fathers of both of these second generation racers have won here but only the Sarge has won for the current generation. The Army car leaves first and is again in the 4.5's as Tony takes out another Kalitta. This is the sixth straight 4.5 for Schumacher and all of his runs today have been within .007 of each other.
