CORDOVA, Ill. - Notes from final, round 3 qualifying in Top Fuel at the 21st annual Amalie Motor Oil Summer Nationals listing lane, driver name, elapsed time/top speed this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run:
Left Lane: Jim Bailey Runs 10.812/81.97, Now #8; Best prior run: 5.150/272.78, Was #7
Right Lane: Louie Allison Runs 5.067/286.38, Now #6; Best prior run: 5.396/217.46, Was #8
Bailey had problems right off the starting line, and clicked it off. Allison with his best pass of the weekend and that puts Bailey on the bump.

Right Lane: Jim Head Runs 4.907/291.89, Now #3; Best prior run: 5.016/287.11, Was #5
Both cars launched hard and were side by side until about 800 feet and then Litton had a big fishtail of smoke and oil. That will cost him the run and 15 points. He ran a 4.916 seconds at 287.05 mph.

Muldowney launched hard and had all the candles lit until about 1000 feet, but she will hold on to the number one spot.
