By Rick Green





ENNIS, Texas - Results of round 1 eliminations in Pro Stock at the 16th annual O'Reilly Fall Nationals presented by Castrol Syntec:

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   8 Warren Johnson      6.891 200.53  Q    9 Ron Krisher         6.894 200.04
 *****WINNER***** 0.446  6.906 199.91  E1                  0.460  6.945 199.46
This is the first time these two have met this year. Warren with a starting line advantage and that is not good for Krisher. Warren just stretches it out from there to take win.

   7 Troy Coughlin       6.887 200.98  Q   10 Tom Martino         6.898 200.26

They both take their sweet time staging and finally Troy goes in and then Martino strapped a hole shot on him and won it on the other end of the track, too. This will avenge the loss in the finals from the last race.
