By Larry Sullivan

This One is Over



BAYTOWN, Texas - Results of final, round 4 eliminations in Top Fuel at the 2nd annual Matco Tools Supernationals:
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed

1:58 PM Scelzi extends his lead over Cory Mac to 115 points with this win, posting an impressive set of 4.50s elapsed time in qualifying and eliminations. Schumacher was also impressive, getting a huge holeshot here, but his team leaned on it a bit too hard and the engine let go just short of half track in a big fireball. With Scelzi and Alan Johnson making missile launches, it probably didn't matter what Schumacher did.

The fat lady isn't singing, but she's clearing her throat.
