The   Rancho Framing   /   White Cap      / Direct Transport Camaro Top Alcohol Funny Car Started the racing
weekend on a positive note. We qualified in the 4th position out of 26 cars at the always tough NHRA
SummitRacing.com Nationals in Las Vegas, NV.  On our first qualifying pass we ran an on and off the throttle
tire shaking 6.014/246.53. In the next qualifying session we ran a 5.700/252.43 which would end up being
good enough to hold on to the #4 qualifying position.  In the 3rd and final qualifying session Mark went into
immediate tire shake and then smoked the tires, only running a 10 second run.  For the first round we made
some changes to make the car more consistent on the hot race surface.  Our first round opponent was
Brandon Lewis, who was in as an alternate for John Weaver who failed to make the call for the first round.
Brandon left first with a .036 reaction time to Mark’s .065 and ran his best run of the weekend a 5.758/248.98
to Mark’s 5.743/249.67 wining the race by 0.0127 seconds (approximately 5 feet) sending us home for the
weekend.  We really enjoyed our first of three back to back racing weekends we will have this year. We had a
semi final finish at Houston and qualified well for one of the toughest fields in Alcohol Funny Car and put
over 4000 miles on our new truck, it has been a busy couple of weeks.
Our next race is the Division 7 race in Bakersfield, CA May 19th – 21st . Thanks to everyone who makes this
possible, we couldn't do it without your support. And a special thanks to Pacific Drywall and Paint of Las
Vegas.
