Top Fuel Semi Finals

 

Sunday eliminations kicked off with the National Anthem and fire the first pair of Top Fuel.

 

Then there were four. Pete Wittenberg meet Dusty Green.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Green welded Wittenberg to the starting line and opened up a substantial early lead.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Green held on for the one tenth holeshot win (.054 to a .145). His 5.800 at 241.63 barely beat Wittenberg's quicker and faster 5.715 at 252.38. It would be Green's first final of the season.

Out next to determine who would meet Green in the final was Mendy Fry and the ever improving Tyler Hilton.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fry got a slight jump but Hilton hung in.

 

 

 

 

 

Fry pulled away to another stellar pass. Her 5.697 at 231.00 got the best of a game Hilton who stepped up with a career best 5.886 at 249.81.

Tater Baker Funny Car Semi Finals

 

First up to see who would make up the B-Field final was Tim Boychuk and Brad Thompson.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thompson left first, Boychuk gave chase.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When it looked like a Jail Break win, Thompson had issues on the top end allowing Boychuk to drive by for the win with a 5.870 at 233.26. Thompson slowed to a 5.928 at 217.13.

Boychuk's final round opponent would be Bill Windham or Shawn Bowen.

 

 

Windham left first by a bunch but it was very apparent that low ET cars were taking the right lane. Like those before him, it was up in smoke basically handing the win to Bowen.

 

 

 

 

 

Bowen motored on down Broadway to a 5.832 at 240.89 giving him lane choice for the final.

Main Show Funny Car Semi Finals

 

Vying for a spot in the finals were Jeff Arend and Jason Rupert.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In another close race Rupert beat Arend 5.61 at 260.81 (top speed) over a 5.74.

It would be Matt Bynum or Bobby Cottrell facing Rupert in the final.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was over instantly when Cottrell went up in smoke at the hit.
