5:49 PM We finally bring in the semifinal round of Federal-Mogul dragster. The curfew is just about an hour away and they will have to turn the winner of these two pairs. Hirata gets to the semi's before the A-Fuel motor lets him down. There was raw fuel coming out of the pipes right at the hit and he clicked it at half track. Nicholson takes the blown car to the final round.
