DALLAS - Pro Stock Truck Round 3 Eliminations
By Larry Sullivan

Championship Tightens Up



ENNIS, Texas - Results of round 3 eliminations in Pro Stock Truck at the 14th annual O'Reilly Fall Nationals presented by Castrol Syntec:
  
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   4 Vinny Barone        7.588 177.09  Q    9 Tim Freeman         7.609 177.16
   (C Eaton     ) 0.444  7.537 177.54  E1   (J Coughlin  ) 0.434  7.585 177.13
   (M Coughlin  ) 0.471  7.602 177.58  E2   (M Osborne   ) 0.476  7.628 176.26
 *****WINNER***** 0.442  7.572 178.18  E3                  0.460  7.572 177.79
4:17 PM These four trucks have been waiting since yesterday afternoon to finish eliminations. Vinny is on his game this weekend and his reaction time proves the difference, the two running identical elapsed times.
  
 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   3 Brad Jeter          7.584 178.39  Q    7 Bob Panella Jr      7.594 177.02
   (B Self      ) 0.425  7.544 178.25  E1   (M Whisnant  ) 0.428  7.543 177.83
   (G Stanfield ) 0.463  7.550 178.42  E2   (R Daniels   ) 0.440  7.578 177.13
 *****WINNER***** 0.426  7.518 179.21  E3                  0.431  8.958 109.23
This one is a major matchup in the title chase, Panella leading Jeter by 99 points coming into this event. That title chase just tightened up, Panella's truck falling by the wayside at half track and Jeter goes on to win the round, set a National speed record for the trucks at 179.21, and earn lane choice against Barone in the final round. The Pro Stock Truck championship will be decided at the Winston Finals, three weeks from now, among Panella, Osborne, and Jeter, though Osborne's chances are slim indeed.
