Results for Qualifying Round 1
POMONA, Calif. - POMONA 1 - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car at the
NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, 48th annual CARQUEST Auto Parts Winternationals
listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:

Right Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 14.457/61.37, Now #7
Instant smoke for the painter, Woznichak.

Friday

Results for Qualifying Round 2

Left Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 5.825/248.89, Now #9
       Best prior run: 14.457/61.37, Was #21
Right Lane: Dennis Taylor    Runs 5.697/252.57, Now #3
       Best prior run: 7.273/123.09, Was #16
Good to see Lions starter, Larry Sutton, backing Taylor to the starting line. His bad back has
slowed him a bit for a few years. Something helped as that was the straightest run out of that
Plumbing Concepts car that I've seen in awhile. Woz improves from his first hit and just
misses the top half of the show.

Results for Qualifying Round 3


Left Lane: Sean O'Bannon    Runs 5.799/257.63, Now #16
       Best prior run: 5.856/256.55, Was #18
Right Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 5.890/248.80, Now #17
       Best prior run: 5.825/248.89, Was #16
O'Bannon was completely off the pedal at 100ft and he still manages to put the car in the
show...on the bump. Woz just misses in the other lane.
