Nostalgia Funny Car Qualifying Notes, Final Session
By Jason Murray





BOISE, Idaho - Notes from final, round 2 qualifying in Nostalgia Funny Car at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, Northwest Division, 42nd Annual NAPA Auto Parts Ignitor at Firebird Raceway listing lane, driver name, elapsed time/top speed this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run:
Left Lane: Jason Rupert Runs 5.826/250.06, Now #1; Best prior run: 11.426/70.67, Was #4
Right Lane: Kurt Cruise Runs 8.490/136.79, Now #5; No Prior Run

Rupert makes a great run and he will go to the top of the field. Rupert ties the track speed record. Cruise will be looking for more tomorrow in eliminations.

Jason Rupert's incremental times: 60ft-1.022 sec., 330ft-2.613, 660ft-3.863/197.97 mph, 1,000ft-4.928.
Kurt Cruise's incremental times: 60ft-1.373 sec., 330ft-3.571, 660ft-5.306/140.38 mph, 1,000ft-6.943.


Left Lane: Ryan Davenport Runs 6.652/179.64, Now #4; Best prior run: 6.696/180.86, Was #4
Right Lane: Will Martin No Time, Now #6; No Prior Run

Martin had his oil containment system split when he fired the car for the burnout, the team has been hard at work since to get a new one put in. Martin shuts off after the burnout. Martin will not make the show due to never staging the car under power.

Davenport makes another shut off run and they will be looking for improvements tomorrow.

Ryan Davenport's incremental times: 60ft-1.116 sec., 330ft-2.865, 660ft-4.281/172.28 mph, 1,000ft-5.490.


Left Lane: John Hale No Time, Now #2; Best prior run: 6.004/246.30, Was #2
Right Lane: Jim Obalek Runs 6.041/234.37, Now #3; Best prior run: 6.010/237.71, Was #3

Hale can't get the car fired. Obalek makes a nice run right down the groove and that will end qualifying for the Funny Car class.

Jim Obalek's incremental times: 60ft-1.063 sec., 330ft-2.702, 660ft-3.993/191.85 mph, 1,000ft-5.098.
