Skuza Continues Mopar Qualifying Success at Route 66 Dean Skuza and the Mopar Parts Dodge Stratus R/T continued to impress by copping the provisional third slot tonight. The Brecksville, Ohio, resident ran a 4.805-second elapsed time at 308.21 mph. Skuza is trying to match a season-best third qualifying effort set here, earlier in the season during the Chicagoland Dodge Dealers NHRA Nationals. ?On our first run, we put a hole out and there were some real bad things about the run,? Larson said. ?The track was a lot better than we thought it would be. We thought about being a little conservative, but (co-crew chief) John Stewart wanted to try something. We haven?t really anything all year. So that?s what we did. ?We threw a belt off in that run as well,? Larson added. ?It didn?t run as good as I would have liked it too in the second part of the pass. We?re pleased. ?It?s hard to say which lane is better because it was such a different car on that one,? Larson continued. ?Its something we?re going to have to look at and study. It was running good enough this afternoon in the right lane to probably run ahead of (Ed) McCullough at a 4.84. I think, if you have tour stuff right, it won?t make that much of a difference.? NOTABLE: Larry Morgan, driver of the blue Mopar Parts Dodge Neon R/T, missed both rounds of Pro Stock qualifying today, waiting to finish and transport a new Hemi engine fresh from his Newark, Ohio, race shop to Route 66 Raceway. DARRELL ALDERMAN, driver of the Mopar Parts Dodge Neon R/T Darrell Alderman and the Mopar Parts Dodge Neon R/T missed the top 16 with a 6.934-second pass at 199.02 mph. The three-time POWERade Pro Stock World Champion talked about his day. ?It was all over the place on my run tonight,? said Alderman, who ran in the right lane in the second session. ?We left pretty well, but he car got real loose. It?s hard to drive out there.? ###
