NHRA RACERS CAN'T OUTRUN MOTHER NATURE

Share:
Qualifying was cut short today at the Route 66 Season Opener, a round of the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series. Competitors in Super Stock and Stock were able to finish their qualifying laps, but rain forced officials to pull the plug on Top Alcohol Dragster (TAD), Top Alcohol Funny Car (TAFC) and Comp Eliminator. Racing will continue Sunday morning, as scheduled. Racers in Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas and Super Street will begin eliminations at 8 a.m. TAD, TAFC and Comp Eliminator drivers will get one qualifying run beginning at 10 a.m. and will go into eliminations at 1 p.m., starting with Comp Eliminator. In Super Stock, Bo Butner of Floyds Knobs, Ind., remained in the No. 1 position as did East Moline, Ill., resident Jerry Stealy in Stock. On Friday, Keith Stark of Danville, Ill., made a 5.307-second, 273.94 mph pass to put him in the top spot. In TAFC, Glendale Hts., Ill., resident Marc White is No. 1 with a 5.648-second, 253.42 mph effort. In Comp Eliminator Steve Ambrose, Woodhaven, Mich., made a 7.818-second run to put him -0.662 seconds under his index, and in the top qualifying position. Gates at Route 66 Raceway open at 7 a.m. Sunday and racing action begins at 8 a.m. The track is also scheduled to host its Tech School Pit Crew Competition at noon. Tickets, including pit pass, are $20. Children 12 and under are admitted free with a paid adult. For more information, call Route 66 Raceway, (815) 727-RACE.
