top speed, and position in order following run:

Left Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 11.373/95.29, Now #5
Right Lane: Larry Miner      Runs 5.729/249.90, Now #1
Woznichak shook hard immediately and coasted through. Miner had a
pretty good-looking run, easily the best of the round so far.

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

Left Lane: Sean Bellemeur   Runs 5.803/221.42, Now #9
             Best prior run: 5.755/255.00, Was #9
Right Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 5.779/252.76, Now #11
             Best prior run: 11.373/95.29, Was #18
9:37 p.m. That was a long cleanup at a bad time. The remainder of the
session will have to be completed in about 23 minutes - not a problem as
long as there are no further delays.
Bellemeur flirted with the wall, but the run was apparently a clean one -
but no improvement. "The Woz" definitely made a big improvement with
his pass here, moving into the field to bump Drake. That put Dennis
Taylor on the bump spot at 6.352, but there isn't anyone left in the lanes
who can bump him.

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

Left Lane: Sean Bellemeur   Runs 5.865/241.54, Now #13
             Best prior run: 5.755/255.00, Was #13
Right Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 5.888/247.43, Now #16
             Best prior run: 5.779/252.76, Was #16
With bumping out of the way, now it's all a matter of pairings.
Both made good-looking runs - straight and smooth - neither was within a
tenth of their best run this weekend.

Jay Payne in the first round when we ran a 5.72  @ 252 mph to Jay's
winning 5.56 @ 260 mph. We lost in the first round, but the car is going
down the track on almost every run, so now we can start to tune the car
back to being a contender.
