First pair to see who would go to the final was Bill Dunlap and Jim Murphy who are the two oldest drivers in NTF.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Murphy got a full tenth on the tree leaving Dunlap to play catch up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the traps, try as he did, Dunlap could not overcome the early deficit. Murphy carded a 5.642 at 245.18 holeshot win. Dunlap ran the quickest pass in High Speed Motorsports history but it wasn't enough. Murphy's MOV: 0.0660 seconds (approximately 25 feet).

In spite of the loss, the entire HSMS team was very pleased with the new cars performance and can't wait for the March Meet.

The other pair to see who would meet Murphy in the final were Tony Bartone and Adam Sorokin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sorokin left first as he most always does leaving Bartone to chase.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bartone finally caught up at the point and proceeded to power on by.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Debris from the fire repair started to exit stage right.

 

 

 

 

 

Bartone advanced with another great pass. His 5.685 at 254.14 covered Sorokin's game 5.815 at 234.74.

Funny Car Semi Finals

 

And then it was four in funny car, first up Jason Rupert and Rick Rogers.

 

 

 

 

 

With a 0.046 light Rogers grabbed a 3 hundredth advantage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unfortunately Rogers experienced problems and shut off before the 330' mark.

 

 

 

 

 

Rupert's 5.637 at 256.16 moved him into the final.

The second pair matched up Kris Krabill and Ryan Hodgson.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Krabill was out first by six hundreds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Krabill took the convincing win with a sterling 5.629 at 255.34 serving notice to Rupert that team Bucky will be a worthy foe in the final. Had they left together this would have been a really close drag race as Hodgson's 5.696 at 252.00 was right there.
