Competition Eliminator Round 3 Eliminations
By Larry Sullivan





GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Results of round 3 eliminations in Competition Eliminator at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, Southeast Division, Prelude to the Gators at Auto Plus Raceway at Gainesville:

 Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET-- Speed-----Car#-Driver(Opp'nt)-RT-----ET-- Speed
 1262 Kevin Houghtaling                      25 Lee Sharp                    
E3                   0.087 No Time           ****WINNER****  0.031 14.350  52.68
         H/A Index: 9.29 (+/-): 90.709           D/SMA Index: 8.95 (+/-):  5.400
 Prior rounds:
E2    (T Terry     ) 0.090  9.623  0.333                     0.073 10.499  1.549
E1                   0.008  9.723  0.433      (R Carpenter ) 0.107 10.017  1.067
 Qualified:             #1  8.562 -0.728                        #2  8.288 -0.662
2:32 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 57 degrees, relative humidity 21 percent, barometer 30.10 inches, adjusted altitude -72 feet, track temperature 78 degrees.

A nine-car ladder is one of the few that sees the #1 and #2 qualifiers meeting in the semifinals. That's because they have both had a bye run before getting to this round, so the bye goes to the #1 qualifier

It looked like both had problems, Houghtaling slowing immediately, obviously broken. Sharp also slowed, not long after. He might have been reacting to Houghtaling's problems (a broken ring and pinion).
