The                  /              / Direct Transport Camaro Top Alcohol Funny
Car is back on track after having a tire shake problem at the end of the 2005
season. Our first run was a 5.88 @ 245, the car was weak on the beginning of
the run, but ran good on the top end. On the 2nd we hopped up the motor and
the car responded with 5.75 @ 250, and that was with Mark having to peddle
the car once as it drifted toward the guard rail. On the last Qualifying pass the
car was on a good pass running 2.49 to the 330 foot mark which is good enough
to run a Low 5.60 or a high 5.50, when it drifted toward the center line and
Mark had to lift. We found the reason the car kept pulling toward the left and
corrected the problem for the first round. We felt confident going into the first
round against Brian Hough, as long as the car went straight it could easily run a
low 5.60 or better. Unfortunately one of our crew members let us down by
stripping a valve cover nut causing the car to leak oil on the right rear tire.
When Mark launched, the car made a violent move toward the right guardrail
forcing him to lift, giving the win to Brian. By the way if you know Mark, that
crew member is hanging by his thumbs in a dark corner of the shop.

Left Lane: Bernie HarringtonRuns 6.060/186.46, Now #9
Right Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 5.888/245.09, Now #7
Harrington's ru looked good early, but he started losing steam at half track.
"Woz" had just the opposite pattern, his car slow off the line, then strong on the
top end.
