POMONA - Big Bud Shootout Round 2 Eliminations
By Larry Sullivan

Rookie vs Veteran in the Final

POMONA, Calif. - Results of round 2 eliminations in Top Fuel at the 14th annual Big Bud Shootout at Pomona:
   7 Doug Kalitta        7.000  26.25  Q   3 Cory McClenathan    3.000  29.90
   (J Amato     ) 0.522  4.615 315.78 E1   (K Bernstein ) 0.501  4.714 303.03
 *****WINNER***** 0.462  4.576 320.85 E2                  0.485  4.646 300.60

2:06 PM Kalitta's driving just keeps improving - here he puts a holeshot on Cory Mac and then drives away from him, Cory Mac's engine starting to mix the cylinders up at half track and pushing out a head gasket at 1,000 feet with a flash of flame.

   1 Gary Scelzi         1.000  31.40  Q   5 Eddie Hill          5.000  27.60
   (L Dixon     ) 0.486  4.682 295.85 E1   (M Dunn      ) 0.541  4.600 315.12
                  0.488  8.820  92.29 E2  *****WINNER*****0.505  4.636 313.69     

Eddie's Saturday race-day theory holds here, Scelzi up in smoke before going 100 feet. Hill advances to the Shootout final, but loses lane choice to Kalitta.
