Oyama-san becomes the first Japanese driver to make to the finals of an NHRA National Event in Top Fuel. Of course Kenji Okazaki won in a Funny Car in 1997 at Englishtown, NJ, when he defeated Chuck Etchells. Cory Mac has never won this event and has been to three other finals this season without a win. The long drought is over for Cory Mac. Oyama didn't roll over for Cory has he actually was quicker than McClenathan on the track but Cory left on him. Congratulations to both drivers on a great performance during a ve4ry difficult weekend.
