By Larry Sullivan





CONCORD, N.C. - Results of final, round 3 eliminations in Funny Car at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, Fifth annual NHRA Four-Wide Nationals:
 Order Car# Lane  Driver         Car                Qual  RT       ET   Speed
  1.      5   3  Robert Hight, '14 Mustang            2  0.044   4.074 311.34
  2.      1   1  John Force, '14 Mustang             11  0.040   4.132 307.51
  3.    771   2  Alexis DeJoria, '12 Camry            9  0.105   4.098 301.67
  4.     10   4  Tim Wilkerson, '14 Mustang           5  0.080   6.631  98.01
4:15 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 80 degrees, relative humidity 44 percent, barometer 29.41 inches, adjusted altitude 2,617 feet, track temperature 108 degrees.

Both Force and Hight have prior Four-Wide wins (2010 and 2012) and Wilkerson is in his third Four-Wide final; DeJoria is in her first. DeJoria comes in with two event wins so far this year, Force and Hight each have one. In other words, all of the 2014 event winners are in the finals and the only way we can get a new winner is for Wilkerson to do the deed. Oh, yeah, and DeJoria was trying to notch the 99th Pro win by a female driver.

Wilkerson smoked 'em before half track, while Hight was driving away from the field for his 31st career win. Force gets the runner-up on a holeshot, his 89th. Hight finished second in round 1 and 2 to get to the finals.

Finish Order & Margins: 1. Robert Hight was 0.0543 sec./about 24 feet ahead of 2. John Force, who was 0.031 sec./about 14 feet ahead of 3. Alexis DeJoria, who was 2.508 sec./more than 100 feet ahead of 4. Tim Wilkerson
