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:
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed

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.
