FMDRS 3-6 - A Soggy Good Morning from Indy
By Dave Gerard





INDIANAPOLIS - FMDRS 3-6 Federal Mogul Drag Racing Series

Good morning from soggy Indianapolis Raceway Park. It rained through the night and just recently quit. The NHRA service trucks are making laps up and down the track to spread out the standing water. The weather man has said that we should have improving weather for the rest of the day. The clouds are much lighter and higher that late yesterday. Current conditions are improving and are not too bad for racing with a temperature of almost 55 degrees, humidity of 83+%, barometer of 29.61, and a light wind across the track from the West of about 3-5 MPH.

The plan for today is to get eliminations started as soon as possible. As I mentioned late yesterday, there is still a plan to have a "cleanup" session for Federal-Mogul Dragster. The two dragsters that haven't made a run yet will be running first and then the slowest to quickest qualifiers will run in pairs, up to the number nine spot. If no one has bumped into the 5.733 field, the top eight will go back and get ready for their first round. If one of these F-M Dragster's bumps into the field, then any of the top 8 has the choice to run to bump back in or improve their positions.

The Division 3 ace prognosticator and DD, Jay Hullinger, tells me that the first Stock Eliminator cars will take the tree at 12:11PM this afternoon. We'll see!!

Please come back through the weekend for results.
