Funny Car Round 2 Eliminations
By Larry Sullivan





EDMONTON, Alb. - Results of round 2 eliminations in Funny Car at the 2005 Hooters IHRA Drag Racing Series, Third Annual Western RV Rocky Mountain Nationals presented by TORCO Race Fuels:

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET---Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT----ET---Speed
  657 Thomas Carter                           1 Rob Atchison                 
E2                   0.102  5.934 229.86     ****WINNER****  0.044  5.897 239.10
 Prior rounds:
E1    (T MCMILLEN  ) 0.170  5.941 236.80      (K KRAUS     ) 0.081  5.865 238.81
 Qualified:             #4  6.006 234.57                        #1  5.842 240.42
3:25 p.m. Atchison left first and that was enough to keep him in the lead when both cars went through light shake about 100 feet out.

    4 Jim Sickles                             2 Mark Thomas                  
E2                         No Time           ****WINNER****  0.182  5.940 236.59
 Prior rounds:
E1    (J EVANCHUK  ) 0.051  5.823 241.84      (T LEBSACK   ) 0.057  5.968 235.84
 Qualified:             #2  5.920 239.02                        #3  5.967 232.71
Sickles was a no-show, so it will be Thomas against Atchison in the final round (where have we seen that act before?). Thomas needed to step up almost a tenth of a second from his qualifying and first-round pace to get lane choice. Nope, Thomas improved slightly on a nice run, but Atchison will name the lanes in the final round.
