CANNON ROARS TO CAREER-BEST TOP SPEED IN JOLIET TO QUALIFY NO. 9

Share:
And the beat goes on. The third car in the Don Schumacher Racing Funny Car stable had a stellar evening tonight as well in final qualifying. Scotty Cannon joined his teammates Whit Bazemore (No. 1 qualifier) and Gary Scelzi (career-best elapsed time), with a personal-best achievement of his own, a career-best 325.22 mph run which put him No. 9 in the field, with a 4.810-second elapsed time. Cannon, driving the Oakley Funny Car, scored back-to-back 4.810-second runs, with a 4.817-second pass in the first round of qualifying at 321.19 mph, a fine accomplishment considering he didn't qualify last week in Memphis, snapping his streak of having qualified for 56 straight races. "We just missed the amount of clutch we put in it. In the second run we were trying to run better. We'll give it another shot tomorrow. It's better than a DNQ. We'll see what happens tomorrow," he said. He'll face Phil Burkart Jr. in the first round of final eliminations tomorrow.
