POMONA - Funny Car Round 3 Eliminations
By Rick Green





POMONA, Calif. - Results of round 3 eliminations in Funny Car at the 34th annual NHRA Winston Finals:
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
  13 Dale Pulde          5.255 290.04  Q  16 Jerry Toliver       5.315 282.92
   (W Bazemore  ) 0.468  4.893 305.60 E1   (C Pedregon  ) 0.497  5.290 278.63
   (G Densham   ) 0.443  4.940 306.01 E2   (T Hoover    ) 0.566  5.099 270.43
 *****WINNER***** 0.509  6.798 290.69 E3                  0.500  7.302 194.04

They leave almost at the same time and are both up in smoke before they get to the christmas tree. Toliver is off and on the throttle first and up in smoke again. He then repeats that routine at least three more times while Pulde takes his time and is off the throttle for a long time and when he gets his foot back into the car hooks up and he motors on into the final. This is Pulde's first final round appearance since Dallas two years ago when he was substituting for an injured Whit Bazemore. He won that one against Cruz.
