SATURDAY - TOP FUEL Q2

 

The second and last qualifying session was held Saturday afternoon under sunny skies. Tyler Hilton led things off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hilton had another clean run and would qualify #3 with his previous 5.94 at 241.

 

 

 

 


 

Next out were Adam Sorokin and Jim Murphy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Murphy was on a strong pass, until he wasn't. At the thousand foot mark the green car burnt the #3 piston and banged the blower slowing him to a 6.03 at 195.97. Sorokin shut off early to a 5.96 at 207.53 but his Q1 5.91 at 210 was good for for #2.

 

 


 

Out for a last chance single was Paul Schultz.

 

 

Schultz lost fire after the burnout and couldn't get the Spirit of Tulsa restarted. After his Q1 no-time DQ and unable to stage under power here, he would not make the show.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tim Cullinan shaved a second off yesterday with a 6.13 ET at 171 MPH

 

The High Speed Motorsports team chose to sit the session out standing on Mendy's earlier 5.66 at 222.
