GRAND BEND, Ont. - Results of round 2 eliminations in Funny Car at the 2005 Hooters IHRA Drag Racing Series, Sixth annual Mopar Canadian Nationals presented by Castrol:

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
  147 Frederick Tigges                        6 Chris Foster                 
E2   ****WINNER****  0.030  5.891 240.12                     0.034  5.951 237.63
 Prior rounds:
E1    (T CARTER    ) 0.036  5.902 238.51      (L DOBBS     ) 0.030  5.983 236.01

3:14 p.m. Nice run by Tigges, right down the groove without the heroics of the first round. Both drivers had great lights and both made good runs, but Tigges' car was quicker early in the run and Foster could not close the gap.

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
    4 Jim Sickles                             3 Terry McMillen               
E2   ****WINNER****  0.080  5.922 239.44                     0.030  6.126 224.77
 Prior rounds:
E1    (M THOMAS    ) 0.072  5.913 238.76      (R ATCHISON  ) 0.059  6.108 230.80
 Qualified:             #4  5.929 239.40                        #8  6.089 230.02
McMillen will stay third in the points, his great reaction time going to waste when his engine was down on power. Meanwhile, Tom Anderson has Sickles' car running like a bracket racer and he will face Tigges in the final round - Tigges has lane choice.
