The Funny Car final paired up the newly crowned 2016 Funny Car Champion, Kris Krabill and the ever tough Jason Rupert.

 

 

 

 

 

Krabill banked three thousands on the tree but it was wiped out by the 60' blocks.

 

 

 

 

 

By the 100' mark Rupert was marching away.

 

 

Krabill shut off early and that was that.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rupert put an exclamation mark on his bad ass weekend with a 5.592 at 250.32.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bucky Austin and some of his guys came over to congratulate Team Rupert & Littlefield. Class act.

The Top Fuel final pitted the two quickest cars in the field, the #1 & #2 qualifiers. Jim Murphy and Tony Bartone and this one was for all the marbles.

Who ever won would capture not only the CHRR title but also the 1916 Top Fuel Championship.

 

 

 

 

Bartone got a big starting line advantage and went on to an easy win, as Murphy experienced a broken fuel line at the hit (see photos) and as it got worse he was forced to shut off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a time slip reading 5.600 at 247.25 it was game, set and match for Bartone.

AA/FA Final

I was told that before round two was run that there were only four cars that could make the call. The four cars decided that the winner of the class would be the car that ran closest to six seconds.

 

First out was Ron Hope and Shawn Callen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hope carded a 6.281 230.21

The other pair was Kyle Hogue and Jason Richey.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hough's 6.222 at 229.94 was closest to 6.00 so he was declared the AA/FA winner
