K&N Filters Winternationals
Pomona
(Feb. 6-9)

The
Rancho Framing Camaro / Top Alcohol Funny Car started the season off with a
great #4 qualifying position, running 5.656  seconds @ 254.62 MPH. Everyone of our
qualifying passes were over 250 MPH. Our first pass was a 5.798/250.46 which ended
up #6 in the first session. We were happy with the MPH, but tire shake in first gear
slowed our ET. In the 2nd session we still had tire shake, but improved  to a
5.786/252.33 which left us in the #8 position. In the final qualifying session we ran our
best ever elapsed time and fastest  MPH, 5.656  seconds @ 254.62 MPH, which was
also 2nd quickest of the session.  In the first round of competition we lost when the
blower belt broke and the car shut off. The early numbers on the run had us running
quicker than our 5.656 in qualifying.

Harrington is in as an alternate for Monaghan. Looks like he only needed one more qualifying pass, as he steps
up big time to take the win. Woznichak  looks to have lost a blower belt before the 1000 foot mark.
