looking to have a successful outing at the Las Vegas Summit Racing Nationals. On our first
run we underestimated the track and only ran a 5.91 @ 242 mph. The second run had very
good early numbers, ( if the car would have continued at the same pace it would have been
in the #2 spot) until we burned a piston & banged the blower slowing to a 5.933 @ 199 mph.  
Here are the results from NHRA.com
LAS VEGAS - LAS VEGAS 1 - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car at the
NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, Ninth annual NHRA SummitRacing.com Nationals
listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:

Left Lane: Rian Konno       Runs 5.908/243.15, Now #7
Right Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 5.914/242.67, Now #8
Two nice side by side passes into the current top half of the field. The Woz was stronger to
half track and then Konno's power gave him the advantage in the lights.


LAS VEGAS - Notes from round 2 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car:

Left Lane: Mark Woznichak Runs 5.933/199.26, Now #22; Best prior run: 5.914/242.67, Was
#22
Right Lane: Rian Konno Runs 9.817/87.18, Now #21; Best prior run: 5.908/243.15, Was #21

Woznichak had a great .953 sixty foot time and was running quicker that the rest of the field
until near mid-track, where the blower did a boomer and launched the burst panel well into
the air.Konno was slow off the line and clicked it early.

LAS VEGAS - LAS VEGAS 1 - Notes from final, round 3 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car:


Left Lane: Mark Woznichak   Runs 10.593/81.79, Now #23
           Best prior run: 5.914/242.67, Was #23
Right Lane: Ken Kraus        Runs 5.787/250.74, Now #13
           Best prior run: 5.897/247.34, Was #19
3:24 p.m. ...and we are back after a brief delay getting Andreasson's car off the track
Kraus makes it back for the final session and makes a clean pass into the current #13 spot.
The Woz's car makes a weird move at the hit and is up in smoke. He wisely gives it up and
coasts on down
