Top Alcohol Funny Car Qualifying Notes, Session #1
By Larry Sullivan

NORWALK, Ohio - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, North Central Division, B'laster Cavalcade of Stars presented by Budweiser listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:
Left Lane: John Hart Runs 6.321/238.26, Now #1
Right Lane: Tony Bogolo No Time, Now #2

8:20 p.m. Bogolo's engine lost power on the burnout and he was pushed back so Hart could make his first run of the year.

Hart rolled the beams and the car sounded like it was laboring through most of the run.

Left Lane: Paul Noakes No Time, Now #4
Right Lane: Fred Hagen Runs 5.537/258.47, Now #1

Noakes' car was shaking the tires and turned right. He clipped the 330-foot timing reflector, DQ'ing the run. Hagen made a good run and he's #1 for a few minutes.

Left Lane: John Anderika Runs 5.760/253.47, Now #2
Right Lane: Fred Tigges Runs 7.739/123.31, Now #4

Tigges' car shook and drifted left, barely missing the new 330-foot reflector. Anderika made a full pass, so he's #2 for a few minutes.

Left Lane: Andy Bohl Runs 5.813/249.58, Now #4
Right Lane: Ray Drew Runs 5.665/259.81, Now #2

They were close to half track, then Drew pulled out a clear lead was pulling away the rest of the way.

Left Lane: Cassie Simonton Runs 9.325/110.64, Now #8
Right Lane: Chris Foster Runs 5.742/254.33, Now #3

Simointon left first and was quicker for about 300 feet, then she lifted and the engine went silent. Foster made a full pass, but both ET and speed are well off his usual numbers.
