BRUCE LITTON UPSET IN ROUND ONE BY BOBBY LAGANA JR.

EPPING, NH -- Bruce Litton's championship hopes practically went down the drain today in round one of the IHRA Parts Pro North American Nationals at New England Dragway.

In round one against everyone's underdog favorite, Bobby Lagana, Jr., Litton's Moser Engineering / Lucas Oil / Spectra One, Stoops / Top Fuel Dragster lost traction at the hit of the throttle and Lagana, Jr. went on to a 5.40-second win.

"That's beyond disappointing," said Litton, owner of Bruce Litton Trailer Sales in Indianapolis. "Losing in round one is one thing, but to lose to a 5.40, that's disheartening and it practically knocks us out of the championship chase."

Litton's next IHRA event will be the CARQUEST Autumn Nationals presented by Prolong, Sept. 25-26th at Rockingham Dragway in Rockingham, N.C. Earlier this season at the Holley Spring Nationals at Rockingham, Litton earned his first career IHRA Top Fuel national event win.

The Parts Pro North American Nationals will be televised on ESPN2, Friday, Oct. 1st at 1 p.m. (ET). The one hour show will be replayed, Tuesday, Oct. 12th at 4 a.m.
