LAS VEGAS 2 - Pro Stock Round 2 Eliminations
By Larry Sullivan





LAS VEGAS - Results of round 2 eliminations in Pro Stock at the Inaugural AC Delco Las Vegas NHRA Nationals:

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   2 Mike Edwards        6.954 198.41  Q    7 Mark Pawuk          6.976 197.25
   (W Johnson   ) 0.401  6.993 197.57  E1   (R Smith     ) 0.450  7.032 196.04
                  0.000 No Time        E2 *****WINNER***** 0.539  7.045 196.22
1:09 PM Surprisingly, these two have only met once before this year, Pawuk the winner in that one. This one was strange, but it looked like the autostart system timed out on Edwards, not staging within the required time after both were pre-staged and Pawuk staged.

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   1 Jim Yates           6.949 197.77  Q    8 Tom Martino         6.979 197.19
   (K Koretsky  ) 0.488  6.988 196.56  E1   (K Johnson   ) 0.438  7.018 196.82
 *****WINNER***** 0.484  7.034 196.02  E2                  0.456  7.095 195.90
Martino held a 3-1 edge against Yates prior to this race, and might have made it 4-1, but his car drifted out of the groove and he scrubbed off some elapsed time getting it back in the groove. Margin of victory = 0.033 seconds (approximately 9 feet).

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   5 Tom Hammonds        6.964 198.32  Q    4 Bruce Allen         6.963 197.62
   (T Coughlin  ) 0.451  6.981 197.91  E1   (H Blakeney  ) 0.468  6.982 197.45
 *****WINNER***** 0.459  7.016 196.59  E2                  0.423  7.124 196.42
This is the first time Hammonds and Allen have faced each other this year. Allen showed his starting line prowess, but Hammonds responded with low ET of the round so far when Allen had problems on the top end. Margin of victory = 0.072 seconds (approximately 21 feet). Hammonds has lane choice against Yates in the semifinals.

 Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-Rd-Qua-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed
   3 Ron Krisher         6.961 198.06  Q    6 George Marnell      6.974 197.54
   (V Gaines    ) 0.463  6.985 197.45  E1   (M Osborne   ) 0.461  6.987 196.85
                  0.452  7.014 197.31  E2 *****WINNER***** 0.425  7.037 196.76
Krisher was 2-0 against Marnell in prior races this year, but Marnell slapped a big enough holeshot on him this time around to take the win against Krisher's low ET of the round. That's Marnell's eighth holeshot win of the season. He will have lane choice against Pawuk in the semifinals. Margin of victory = 0.004 seconds (approximately 14 inches).
