CORDOVA - Top Fuel Round 1 Eliminations
By Rick Green

CORDOVA, Ill. - Results of round 1 eliminations in Top Fuel at the 21st annual Amalie Motor Oil Summer Nationals:

   5 J.R. Todd           4.955 277.43  Q    4 Paul Romine         4.915 298.73
                  0.514  4.936 293.09  E1 *****WINNER***** 0.514  4.778 308.43
They leave together, but Romine has by the 60-foot mark and then stretched out from there. This was great side-by-side drag race.

   6 Louie Allison       5.067 286.38  Q    3 Jim Head            4.907 291.89
 *****WINNER***** 0.522  4.993 297.42  E1                  0.521  5.155 271.84
Again they leave together and are glue together until around 1000 feet and then Head had some engine smoke like the engine was going away. Allison with his first round win ever and the first time into the fours.

   8 Jim Bailey          5.150 272.78  Q    1 Shirley Muldowney   4.741 319.22
 *****WINNER***** 0.633  4.862 294.37  E1                  0.000 No Time
Muldowney left before the tree was activated and that gave Bailey a freebie. Bailey made the best of it running his best pass of the weekend.

   7 Bruce Litton        5.069 238.30  Q    2 Clay Millican       4.829 291.76
 *****WINNER***** 0.501  4.840 296.44  E1                  0.535  4.818 306.53
Litton left first, but Millican was right there with him all the way down the quarter mile. Litton started smoking and oiling the track starting around half track, but held on to win. That will cost Litton some more points. Romine will have his lane choice against Bailey, and Allison will get his choice against Litton.
