GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Results of final, round 3 eliminations in Top Alcohol Funny Car 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 16 Dan Pomponio 7 Kris Hool E3 ****WINNER**** 0.077 9.732 89.68 0.061 No Time Prior rounds: E2 (T Veney ) 0.059 5.669 256.94 No Time E1 (M Ferro ) 0.057 5.710 255.82 (M Rogers ) 0.151 5.691 259.36 Qualified: #3 5.715 253.37 #1 5.598 261.625:46 p.m. Hool did not make a test pass in the semifinals and, in hindsight, he might be questioning that decision. Pomponio shook and slowed almost immediately. Meanwhile, Hool got about 300 feet out and his car got very tail-happy, crossing the centerline and collecting the half-track timing reflectors.
Pomponio got to the finish line second, by three seconds, but he gets the first
TAFC event win of the new season anyway.
