By Larry Sullivan





GRAND BEND, Ont. - Results of round 2 eliminations in Top Fuel at the Inaugural Mopar Parts Canadian Nationals presented by Castrol:

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   7 Jim Head            5.027 294.69  Q    3 Shirley Muldowney   4.785 309.38
   (D Foxworth  ) 0.538  4.903 289.20  E1   (B Litton    ) 0.506  4.848 310.13
                  0.535  4.879 299.30  E2 *****WINNER***** 0.517  4.828 278.63
3:30 PM This was a good drag race, Shirley with a small holeshot and then stretching that advantage slightly all the way down the track, never "headed" (sorry, couldn't resist at least one pun). Both cars smoked the tires on the top end. Margin of victory = 0.069 seconds (approximately 30 feet).

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   1 Paul Romine         4.769 307.58  Q    4 Clay Millican       4.793 298.21
   (L Allison   ) 0.515  4.863 303.43  E1   (J Bailey    ) 0.534  4.768 306.95
                  0.535  5.198 198.41  E2 *****WINNER***** 0.538  4.892 298.40
Romine had this won for the first 1,000 feet, but then his car nosed over and Millican got a lucky win. Millican's car dropped a couple cylinders on the right side and the car drifted right, almost collecting the guard rail near the finish line. Shirley will have lane choice in the final round.
