GRAND BEND, Ont. - Results of round 3 eliminations in Torco Race Fuels Pro Modified at the 2005 Hooters IHRA Drag Racing Series, Sixth annual Mopar Canadian Nationals presented by Castrol:

Billes left first, but his car shook and got sideways and he had to lift, giving Harper a free run to the finish line. Harper won easily, but may have sacrificed a few pistons in the lights.

    1 Mike Janis                           1237 Burton Auxier                
E3                   0.075  6.272 223.28     ****WINNER****  0.035  6.746 197.16

This was over quickly, Janis pulling away when Auxier had early tire shake. Janis faces Harper in a blown-nitrous final round, Janis with the supercharger and lane choice.

Late note: Janis failed fuel check, the moisture in the air getting into his fuel, and Auxier will race Harper in an all-nitrous final round, Harper will have lane choice.
