The first pair out of
the water box was Cory Lee and Drew Austin.
They left the line together but
Austin had stout early numbers and started to drive away.
At about the '300 mark
Austin got out of the groove and had to pedal.
Austin slowed to a 6.069
while Lee carded a solid 5.723 at 257.87.
Pair two pitted Billy
Morris and Kris Krabill. Things were getting serious.
Morris got a slice of
At the other end it was Krabill
taking the win with 5,788 at 240.89. Morris had issues and shut
off to a 5.908 at 192.36.
The third pair was supposed to
be Geoff Monise and Rian Konno but the latter failed to make
the call and Geoff did the mandatory stage and break the beam
for the win.
Next up matched a pair of champs.
Dan Horan Jr. and Bobby Cottrell. After his DNQ in top fuel,
Horan was all in.
Both drivers left together
and we had a drag race.
Cottrell needed his 5.637
at 245.45 to beat Horan's 5.759 at a faster 258.86.
The first pair to see
who would go to the finals was Jim Murphy and Tyler Hester.
The vet and the rookie
At the stripe it was Murphy taking
the win with his best run of the weekend. His 5.736 at 260.81
which was the top speed of the entire event got the best of Hester's
game 5.939. If the Tedford & McGee team can get this car
from A to B under power, watch out.
Who would meet Murphy
in the final... Bret Williamson or Tyler Hilton.
As Hilton was experiencing an
engine failure, Williamson put Mike Fuller's hot rod into the
final with a 5.837 at 255.24 setting up an evenly matched final.
