FMDRS 4-6 - Federal-Mogul Dragster Qualifying Notes, Session #1
By Bob Orme





NOBLE, Okla. - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Federal-Mogul Dragster at the NHRA Division 4 Federal-Mogul Drag Racing Series Finale listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:


Left Lane: Kent Nuckols Runs 5.832/245.76, Now #2
Right Lane: Jay Meyer Runs 5.693/249.79, Now #1

Nuckols jumped into the staging beams, then he left soft, and late. Meyer was a little out of the groove on this pass.

Left Lane: Randy Meyer Runs 6.082/216.03, Now #3
Right Lane: Larry Becktold No Time, Now #4

Meyer chattered the tires for the first 100 feet. His A-Fuel dragster dropped a cylinder at half track, and dropped another one at 900 feet. Becktold was unable to fire the engine in the staging lanes.

Left Lane: Brian Ratliff Runs 8.021/115.39, Now #5
Right Lane: Larry Traugott Runs 5.892/237.96, Now #3

Ratliff shook hard on the launch and he was off the throttle at 300 feet. Traugott fought to keep the car from hitting the retaining wall from half track all the way through the traps.

Left Lane: Alan Bradshaw Runs 5.814/244.76, Now #3
Right Lane: Mark Hentges Runs 5.579/258.91, Now #1

Hentges moved toward the centerline in the middle section of the track. Bradshaw didn't have any apparent problems here.

This was the last pair of cars down the drag strip for the day. Rain moved into the area, and the decision to call it quits was made at approximately 6:00 PM. There are about twenty Federal-Mogul Dragsters on the property.
