Top Alcohol Dragster Qualifying Notes, Final Session
By Larry Sullivan





BAYTOWN, Texas - Notes from final, round 2 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 this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run:
Left Lane: James Thompson Runs 15.203/68.75, Now #9; Best prior run: 18.819/67.72, Was #9

6:45 p.m. Darvin Martinets is on the bump spot at 14.701.

Thompson lost traction immediately. He tried to regain traction, but was not successful.

Left Lane: Darvin Martinets No Time, Now #8; Best prior run: 14.701/53.69, Was #8
Right Lane: Randy Meyer Runs 7.919/215.27, Now #6; Best prior run: 13.666/76.11, Was #7

Both cars spun the tires, Martinets popping the burst panel, which shut the engine down. Meyer pedaled two or three times and improved enough to move up one spot on the ladder.

Left Lane: Forrest Fair Runs 15.808/78.28, Now #5; Best prior run: 7.636/109.41, Was #5
Right Lane: Michael Manners Runs 13.435/77.87, Now #7; Best prior run: 11.482/88.96, Was #7

Both cars were up in smoke immediately.

Left Lane: Buddy Domingue Runs 14.524/82.72, Now #4; Best prior run: 5.556/258.96, Was #4
Right Lane: David Brounkowski Runs 11.941/60.42, Now #1; Best prior run: 5.263/259.81, Was #1

Domingue lost traction immediately. Brounkowski had a strong launch, with a 0.925 60-foot time, but he lifted when the rear tires started to shake.

Left Lane: Gord Gingles Runs 12.857/73.11, Now #2; Best prior run: 5.351/267.43, Was #2

Same story - immediate tire spin.
