We came to the Inaugural Division 7 race at California Drag way with high hopes. We were
excited to race at a local track and showcase our local Sponsors. We knew the track would be
tricky with only a 330 foot concrete launch pad, so we were going to try to run the car really hard
to the 330 foot cone and hopefully have enough momentum to make it down the track without
spinning the tires. On our first 2 qualifying passes the car only made it about 200 feet when it
spun the tires and Mark had to shift and peddle the car to get down the track, running a 6.27 and
a 6.15. For the last session we softened the car up quite a lot and were able make a full run which
qualified us in the #5 spot with a 5.95 @ 244 mph. In the first round against Sean Bellemeur we
tried to put the power back in the car and have Mark shift into second gear early, to calm the car
down though the part of the track that was loose for us. We won the round, but only ran a 6.00 @
242 mph. In the semi finals against Doug Gordon we knew we had to run faster and the track
seemed better so we put the power back in it. When Mark left the starting line he cut a  -.020 red
light giving the win to Doug and then the car went out and got loose and only ran a 6.12 @ 239
mph and that was the end of our weekend.

The year is winding down and we only have 2 races left, the Division race in Las Vegas and the
Finals at Pomona. We decided to not attend the Chicago race and concentrate on the last 2 races
which are on back to back weekends. Thanks to All of our sponsors that have really helped us
out a lot this year without their support we could not race.

FONTANA, Calif. - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing
Series, Pacific Division, event at California Dragway listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and
position in order following run:

Left Lane: Mark Woznichak Runs 6.277/193.46, Now #5
Right Lane: Bret Williamson Runs 5.965/238.30, Now #2

These two are always part of the qualifying list at Div. 7 races. The Woz takes the long way down moving
towards the wall at about 330 feet or so. Williamson pulls the handles on the Corvette and runs hard into
the current #2 spot.

FONTANA, Calif. - Notes from round 2 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car

Left Lane: Jeff Carroll Runs 5.978/230.29, Now #5; Best prior run: 5.963/236.80, Was #5
Right Lane: Mark Woznichak Runs 6.158/238.05, Now #8; Best prior run: 6.277/193.46, Was #8

Both drivers had their hands full of loose funny cars. About the only thing they didn't do was swap lanes or
hit the wall. The center line was safe as well. The Woz was on the bump coming in and remains there even
though he picks up about a tenth.

FONTANA, Calif. - Notes from final, round 3 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny
Left Lane: Mark Woznichak Runs 5.955/244.21, Now #5; Best prior run: 6.158/238.05, Was #9
Right Lane: Jeff Carroll Runs 5.989/236.84, Now #6; Best prior run: 5.963/236.80, Was #5

Carroll is already in the field but this is the last shot for Woznichak. The Woz makes the field and bumps Bob
Gallio. That puts Rian Konno is on the bump spot at 5.994.

Bellemeur looked like he was doing an extra burnout when he swapped feet. Clutch was just a bit tight. The
Woz motored away for the win.
