NHRA Summer
Championships
Sonoma, CA July 2-4
The Rancho Framing Camaro qualified for one of the tougher division 7 races in the # 8 spot.   In the first round of qualifying we ran a
5.77 which put us in the #2 spot.  We had been running our spare motor and decided to put in our new motor for the 2nd round,
unfortunately an oil line came loose causing us to shut down after the burn out.  In the final round of qualifying not being sure our 5.77
would keep us in the show, we put in a aggressive tune up. It was a little too aggressive as the car got out of shape and almost crossed the
center line on a 5.84 pass. In the first round Against Brett Williamson we tried to soften the car for the middle of the track where we had
problems on the previous run, but  we lost running a 5.84 to Brett's 5.72

Our next race is the National event at this same track  July 30  thru August 1

SONOMA, Calif. - Notes from round 1 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series, Pacific Division,
event at Infineon Raceway listing lane, driver name, elapsed time, top speed, and position in order following run:

Left Lane:
Mark Woznichak Runs 5.775/250.46, Now #1
Right Lane: Bret Williamson Runs 5.855/245.99, Now #2

4:34 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 76 degrees, relative humidity 44 percent, barometer 29.96 inches, track temperature 115
degrees.


Conditions haven't changed a bit as we go into the Funny Cars. The Woz was right down the middle of the lane on his hit but there was a bit
of smoke as the car cleared the lights. Word from the starting line his check close as there was some oil at the starting line. It appears that
the oil was isolated and we shouldn't be down for more than a couple of minutes. Williamson used a lot of lane on the right side and got
pretty close to the wall. I wonder if that wall looks as close to the driver as it does to us in the tower?

Notes from round 2 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series

Left Lane:
Mark Woznichak No Time, Now #7; Best prior run: 5.775/250.46, Was #2
Right Lane: Steve Gasparrelli Runs 5.895/249.58, Now #9; No Prior Run

Gasparrelli is about to make his first pass of the weekend. The bump is Doug Gordon at 5.894. The Woz must have broken something on
the burnout as we have oil out to about 300 feet in his lane. He's pushed back by hand and Gasparrelli takes a single. There's no joy in that
camp either as he just misses the show by .001.

SONOMA, Calif. - Notes from final, round 3 qualifying in Top Alcohol Funny Car at the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series

Left Lane: Pete Swayne Runs 5.820/251.67, Now #5; Best prior run: 5.751/253.71, Was #5
Right Lane:
Mark Woznichak Runs 5.847/247.11, Now #7; Best prior run: 5.775/250.46, Was #7

The Woz missed the second session today with problems but is still in the show. Swayne will look for the top half of the show. The conditions
just aren't quite what the racers need to create an all 5.7 show. Doug Gordon is the last car in the 5.8s left in the field.
