By Larry Sullivan





MOHNTON, Pa. - Results of round 3 eliminations in Pro Stock at the 16th annual Keystone Nationals:

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   3 Warren Johnson      6.855 200.71  Q    7 Jeg Coughlin        6.875 200.08

4:11 PM And for our featured match, one fall...the #1 and #2 number plates square off in the semifinals, Jeg apparently enroute to unseating WJ as Winston Champion and WJ not having his typical year. But this round win should help salve the wounds a little bit, Jeg with a slightly better light and WJ with a slightly better run, the margin of victory = 0.010 seconds (approximately 3 feet).

Only Smith stood in the way of a father-son final round and Kurt made quick work of that obstacle, making up Smith's starting line advantage early in the run and then extending his lead slightly on the top end for a margin of victory = 0.031 seconds (approximately 9 feet) and lane choice against his father in the finals. This will be the 40th time they have faced each other, the third time this year, with WJ leading the series 28-11 in prior meetings and 2-1 this year.
