SCOTTY CANNON OUT IN FIRST ROUND IN JOLIET

Share:
From his No. 14 qualifying position, Oakley Funny Car driver Scotty Cannon was ready for his first-round battle in the Lucas Oil NHRA Route 66 Nationals at Route 66 Raceway with No. 3 qualifier Gary Densham, from John Force's three-car team. The Lyman, S.C., resident and 1999 NHRA Rookie of the Year was poised for a spirited contest. The pair launched with nearly identical reaction times; .103 for Cannon, .095 for Densham. But it was Densham all the way to the finish line, taking the victory with a 4.803/321.04 to Cannon's 4.975/303.71. "We tried hard to get ahead of him," said Cannon, "but a piston and a ring came apart early during the burnout. We didn't have a chance; the car just ran slow. It had a hole (cylinder) out basically the whole way." Cannon is 15th in the POWERade Drag Racing Series Funny Car point standings, with 339 points.
