After not qualifying at the Las Vegas Regional Race and ending up in the #9 first
alternate position the Color by Woz team made some changes to the fuel system
The Changes really helped as we qualified the Water One / Direct Transport /
Color by Woz Chevy  Monte Carlo Alcohol Funny Car in the #7 position with a
5.745 @ 252.05 mph at the 4500’+ corrected altitude Las Vegas Speedway. In the
first round we raced the #9 qualifier Brian Hough. They both left almost together
with Mark having a slight one hundredth of second advantage off the starting line.
By half track Brian had a slight lead of a couple hundredths when he blew up his
motor and Mark passed him to take the win with a 5.738 @ 253.18 mph to Brian’s
slowing 5.954 @ 201.76 mph. In the Second round Mark was paired up with Jay
Payne’s Fire Ice Mustang . Mark ran his best time of the weekend a 5.660 @
255.00 mph, but it was not enough to hold off Jay’s best time of the race a 5.547
@ 259.56 mph run. That was the end of our weekend of racing and we will not run
again until the Regional race at Sonoma, CA in July.
