FUEL ELIMINATIONS ROUND ONE
Following the National
Anthem the first pair was #1 Mendy Fry and #8 Jerry Hangey.
Playing it safe Fry didn't exactly
saw down the tree but her 0.162 RT left Hangey's 0.586 RT in
another time zone. Game, set, match.
Pair two was #7 Tim Cullinan
and #2 Jim Young.
Cullinan got a 5 hundredth
advantage on the tree but that was short lived.
Young moved on to the
Joey Haas was unable
to make the call and that left Jim Murphy with a bye.
Hoping they got the data
needed, Murphy shut off early to a 6.456 at 158.99.
Finishing out round one
was Adam Sorokin and Tyler Hilton. SBC vs BBC.
As he does so well Sorokin
nailed Hilton to the tree. Huge holeshot.
The race was all Sorokin
--- until it wasn't.
Hilton is a MPH car, Sorokin
is not. For whatever reason the Champion car went silent and
a never quit Hilton drove by on the top end. His 5.952 at 250.92
overcame the starting line advantage and sent Sorokin's 6.112
at 172.32 back to California.
