with tire shake for most of the year. We have not been performing up to our own
expectations since the middle of the season and we are going to be making some major
POMONA, Calif. - POMONA 2 - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car
at the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, 43nd annual Automobile Club of Southern
California NHRA Finals listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in
order following run:

Left Lane: Sean O'Bannon    Runs 5.838/254.62, Now #5
Right Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 5.925/247.38, Now #9
O'Bannon suffered a pretty good shaking at 200ft but he managed to drive through it.
Woznichak was straighter but just a couple of ticks slower.

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

Left Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 5.901/251.34, Now #20
       Best prior run: 5.925/247.38, Was #20
Right Lane: Clint Thompson   Runs 5.819/253.61, Now #11
       Best prior run: 5.926/250.69, Was #21
Woz went whack...whack on the pedal and that costs him a spot in the field. Thompson
was just a bit stronger and manages to crack the field and bump Taylor. That puts Moats
on the bubble.


POMONA, Calif. - POMONA 2 - Notes from final, round 3 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny
Car:

Left Lane: Russ Parker      Runs 9.587/113.16, Now #24
       Best prior run: 5.865/250.23, Was #23
Right Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 5.829/245.36, Now #18
       Best prior run: 5.901/251.34, Was #24
Parker gets really loose before 330ft and is coasting silently as The Woz goes by. Only
problem was he just didn't go by as quickly as he needed to to make the field.
