IMPORT -6 - Modified Round 1 Eliminations
By Michael L Jex





PONOMA, Calif. - Results of round 1 eliminations in Modified at the Mazda NHRA Import World Finals Presented by Toyo Tires:

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   4 Stephan Papadakis   9.651 159.80  Q    5 Adrian Sabori       9.822 147.03
 *****WINNER***** 0.473  8.980 164.71  E1                  0.577 10.108 150.07
Papadakis looked awesome on this run - monster burnout, and a slam bam blast right down the middle of the left lane. He made a couple of wiggles during each shift, otherwise the run was just about perfect. Sabori trailed at the stripe by over 100 feet.

   7 Jose Vidal         11.362 123.47  Q    2 Carlos Gonzalez     8.823 153.66
                  0.612 10.886 132.35  E1 *****WINNER***** 1.091 No Time
This was wild! Vidal won the race, but was not wearing the required safety attire for this class. As a result he was disqualified at the top end, and Gonzalez, who broke at the starting line is the winner.
