FUEL QUALIFYING SESSION 3
2PM: Leading off the third and
final Top Fuel qualifying session was March Meet winner Pete
Wittenberg on a single. Several cars chose to pass on Q3 and
get ready for round one.
Wittenberg clicked it
early to a 6.227 at 177.20 which would be good for the #7 spot.
Next up was Canadian
Phil Ruskowski for his final attempt to make the show.
A 7.484 at 153.11 left
Phil the odd man out.
Next out was defending Top Fuel
World Champion Jim Murphy who is not having a championship year.
After troubles in Q1 and missing Q2 due to another issues left
the team with their backs against the data wall and sitting #8.
Tire smoke at the '60 mark left
Murphy sitting on the bump and a date with Mendy Fry in round
one that evening.
Out next was Bret Williamson
aka The Burnout King for his last shot.
Williamson was done early
and coasted through. His earlier 6.098 left him #5.
The session ended with
the one and only pair. The hitters. Mendy Fry and Adam Sorokin.
Fry lit the red light
but in qualifying that matters not.
Once again Fry wows the field
with a 5.68 at 249.81 which cemented her #1 spot while Sorokin
stayed #2 with a 5.850 at 237.71.
