FUEL ROUND ONE
Leading off eliminations
was Tyler Hilton and Bret Williamson.
Both drivers left together
and we had a drag race.
In a close one Hilton took the
win with a 6.037 at 240.89. Williamson was right there with a
6.112 at 221.23.
Pair two featured Brendan
Murry and Dusty Green.
Green left first by nearly
a tenth. Murry was left to play some major catch up.
This was all Green who carded
a 5.985 at 248.34 while Murry was sacrificing pistons before
the eighth and shut off.

Out next was the highly

.085 reaction times both.
Wittenberg had better early numbers
and was pulling away by the 330' mark. His out of the blue 5.703
at 253.66 easily covered Sorokin's 5.907 at 244.12.
To quote Adam,
"Well, that sucked.
We fell off in the 1st round and ran 5.90 to Petes 5.73.
They ran good, we did not...
The final pair could easily be
a final at most races, Mendy Fry and Jim Murphy. However, at
this race Murphy had nothing but trouble in qualifying and Fry
did not. It was #1 vs #8.
Neither RT was stellar
yet both cars basically left together.
At this point we had
a text book drag race.
But as fate would have it Murphy
again had engine issues and was forced to shut off. It mattered
not to Fry who ran low ET of the meet. Her 5.678 at 253.47 was
just another statement in what was becoming a long list of High
