Top Alcohol Dragster Qualifying Notes, Session #1
By Larry Sullivan

BAYTOWN, Texas - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Top Alcohol Dragster at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, South Central Division, Showdown at Sundown at Royal Purple Raceway listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:
Right Lane: Forrest Fair Runs 7.636/109.41, Now #1

5:30 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 70 degrees, relative humidity 24 percent, barometer 30.06 inches, adjusted altitude 907 feet, track temperature 75 degrees.

Fair rattled the tires and the car started easing its way over toward the wall. He got it back to the groove, then lifted.

Left Lane: Michael Manners Runs 11.482/88.96, Now #2
Right Lane: Darvin Martinets Runs 14.701/53.69, Now #3

Martinets shook hard and lifted. Manners "boiled the hides." He tried to settle it down, but smoked the tires hard again.

Left Lane: Lee Callaway Runs 5.371/268.65, Now #1
Right Lane: Buddy Domingue Runs 5.556/258.96, Now #2

Finally we see two cars go all the way to the stripe. Neither came close to their personal best, but it's a start.

Left Lane: David Brounkowski Runs 5.263/259.81, Now #1
Right Lane: James Thompson Runs 18.819/67.72, Now #7

Thompson overpowered the launch pad in a cloud of smoke. Brounkowski made a nice run, just a couple hundredths slower than his career-best ET

David Brounkowski's incremental times: 60ft-0.921 sec., 330ft-2.366, 660ft-3.465/227.00 mph, 1,000ft-4.417.

Left Lane: Randy Meyer Runs 13.666/76.11, Now #7
Right Lane: Gord Gingles Runs 5.351/267.43, Now #2

Meyer overpowered the launch pad in a cloud of smoke. Gingles made a nice run, just three thousandths slower than his career-best ET and 3 mph slower than his career-best speed.

That closes out the first session with Brounkowski on the top of the list and Martinets on the bump spot at 14.701.
