Funny Car Qualifying Session Two

 

With all the delays of the day, the second session for Funny Car did not go off until the sun was almost gone. Being that NHRA has a "no flash" rule only Bob Brown tackled the conditions and shot what he could of the cars that did run. Not ideal coverage, but far better than nothing. Thanks, Bob.

The rest of our team put the priority on the Honorees Ceremony at the Double Tree Hotel. That coverage was for Cacklefest.com.

 

The Friday evening session was led off by Matt Bynum on a single.

The final pair was Mike Halstead and Jason Rupert.

 

 

 

 

 

Halstead had issues and clicked it early. Rupert ripped off a 5.57 at 244.58, a time that would have moved him into the #2 had he not blown a second engine once again oiling the track and negating the time.
