GOODGUYS - Nostalgia B Top Fuel Round 1 Eliminations
By Darryl Jackman

LAS VEGAS - Results of round 1 eliminations in Nostalgia B Top Fuel at the 12th Annual Goodguys Fall Classic:

   5 Brendan Murry       6.533 204.88  Q    1 Rick McGee          6.325 215.58
                  0.710  9.097  89.89  E1 *****WINNER***** 0.597  6.450 204.91
11:22 AM This is the first pair in Top Fuel 'B'. Murry's car didn't look healthy as he staged. Before half track the car was drifting towards the centerline and Brendan clicks it off. McGee goes on to get the first round win.

   2 Dale Pulde          6.337 221.05  Q    6 Mike McLennan       6.608 220.62
                  0.500  6.614 224.51  E1 *****WINNER***** 0.551  6.479 221.60
Big match up here. Pulde just never got a handle on the track yesterday and will start #2 in the 'B' field for this event. McLennan leaves second but catches Pulde by 60 feet. He pulled away at every marker as Pulde's engine was mixing cylinders all the way to the finish stripe.

   8 Gerry Steiner       6.911 209.04  Q    4 Bob Muravez         6.464 212.73
 *****WINNER***** 0.565  6.142 230.80  E1                  0.559  6.501 219.79
11:45 AM We seem to have had move timing system problems but it appears we're back in business again. Think Steiner's a bit upset not to qualify in the 'A' field? He just lays a really big pass against Muravez in the Western Hoist racers. That was a whuppin'!

  99 Rich Howell        No Data        Q   99 Lee Jennings Sr.   No Data
 *****WINNER***** 0.573  6.626 219.44  E1                  0.626 10.985  82.66
This pair was up earlier but the tree again malfunctioned and they went to the back of the session. Neither of these drivers qualified in the field but breakage pits the two against each other in round one. Jennings started smoking the tires off the line and stayed with it to about half track. Howell was out and away for the win. That's all for the first round of Top Fuel.
