POMONA, Calif. - Results of round 3 eliminations in Top Fuel at the 34th annual NHRA Winston Finals:
Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed 11 Cory McClenathan 4.646 300.60 Q 10 Kenny Bernstein 4.636 315.01 (E Hill ) 0.474 4.597 302.82 E1 (C Powell ) 0.459 5.726 255.31 (D Kalitta ) 0.419 4.769 298.30 E2 (J Amato ) 0.463 4.693 305.70 0.513 5.082 195.22 E3 *****WINNER***** 0.463 4.683 313.58
3:11 PM Both these drivers have dipped into the "luck bank" to get this far today, Bernstein in round one and Cory Mac in round two. Here the luck went back to Bernstein's lane, Cory Mac running quicker at every mark to half track, and then losing traction violently, the engine letting go - which came first was hard to tell from here. Bernstein got the win light by a big margin as Cory Mac slowed to a stop, the car smoking heavily. He's okay, his season is over, and the Safety Safari has more work to do.
Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed 4 Larry Dixon 4.580 313.04 Q 1 Gary Scelzi 4.548 323.85 (J Head ) 0.468 4.638 317.57 E1 (D Lampus ) 0.496 4.564 320.97 (M Dunn ) 0.484 4.626 314.57 E2 (D Herbert ) 0.495 4.667 307.16 0.476 4.695 306.85 E3 *****WINNER***** 0.473 4.600 317.12
Good drag race, but Scelzi had Dixon covered all the way, ahead at every incremental time. It was close on the top end, Scelzi's car spitting flames out the right side in the lights, but he won by over a car length and has lane choice over Bernstein in the final round.
