FMDRS 5-6 - Federal-Mogul Funny Car Qualifying Notes, Session #2
By Bob Orme

MORRISON, Colo. - Notes from round 2 qualifying in Federal-Mogul Funny Car at the NHRA Division 5 Federal-Mogul Drag Racing Series Event 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: Bernie Harrington Runs 10.416/107.21, Now #2; Best prior run: 6.103/233.88, Was #2
Right Lane: Vern Moats Runs 6.181/233.96, Now #3; Best prior run: 6.652/218.41, Was #5

3:50 PM Harrington shook hard on the hit, then went up in smoke. Moats was moving around a bit on the top end of the track, but was good enough to move into the number two spot for now.

Left Lane: Kirk Williams Runs 6.056/237.96, Now #1; Best prior run: 6.064/237.92, Was #1
Right Lane: Bob Hurley Runs 7.005/203.19, Now #8; Best prior run: 7.488/186.20, Was #8

Hurley shook on the launch, and when he got it hooked up he was out of the groove near the retaining wall. He stayed on it, but it was fight all the way down the track.

Left Lane: Michael Oliver Runs 6.737/209.36, Now #6; Best prior run: 6.677/210.57, Was #6
Right Lane: Lawren Jones Runs 6.134/224.88, Now #3; Best prior run: 6.183/227.84, Was #4

Oliver's car was bouncing all the way to the half track timing cones, which he almost took out. He was very close to the centerline in the middle section of the track.

Left Lane: Steve Griboski Runs 6.330/228.38, Now #6; Best prior run: 8.148/130.27, Was #9
Right Lane: Robert Kanenwisher Runs 11.396/67.80, Now #5; Best prior run: 6.233/233.36, Was #5

Kanenwisher was off the throttle at 200 feet, the reason not apparent from here.

Right Lane: Rex Williams Runs 6.800/202.00, Now #8; Best prior run: 6.964/204.23, Was #8

Williams was all over his lane, he could not find the groove. He improves but stays on the bump spot and Kirk Williams is on the pole with a 6.056-second elapsed time.
