By Larry Sullivan





BAYTOWN, Texas - Results of round 1 eliminations in Top Fuel Harley at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, South Central Division, Showdown at Sundown at Royal Purple Raceway:

Bike#-Rider-(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed----Bike#-Rider-(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
   63 Jay Turner                            111 Mike Scott                   
E1   ****WINNER****  0.056  8.025 138.31                     0.034 18.898  61.21
 Qualified:             #4  6.549 225.22                        #5  6.559 206.99
2:07 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 66 degrees, relative humidity 33 percent, barometer 30.11 inches, adjusted altitude 618 feet, track temperature 85 degrees.

Scott broke on the launch and limped down the track, leaving some parts on the track near the tree. Turner had a good launch, but smoked the tire about 300 feet out and the engine went sour (nitro engines don't run well when nit under a load) and he nursed it to the stripe.

    2 Tommy Grimes                         1120 Brook McCabe                 
E1                   0.072  7.226 161.96     ****WINNER****  0.081  6.487 218.27

Grimes' bike kept going to the right and he leaned as far as he could, to no avail. He had to back off the throttle and that let McCabe pull away for the upset win.

Horne's bike runs like it's on rails, smooth and straight. Horne runs low ET of the weekend and will have lane choice against Turner in the semifinals.

House's bike shook and slowed shortly after leaving the line. Dorn made a good, full pass, but it wasn't quick enough to get lane choice against McCabe in the semifinals.
