McClenathan Not Happy with Quarterfinal Finish at Fall Nationals

Cory McClenathan was unhappy  with his performance Sunday in the O'Reilly
Fall Nationals when he left the  Texas Motorplex.  The driver of the FRAM Top
Fuel dragster was glum because  he let a round win get away.
"I got left on," he said  matter-of-factly, "and we lost. The guys on the
crew gave us a good race car and  I let them down."
McClenathan wasn't pleased with his first-round  reaction time, either.  "I
just wasn't good Sunday and I don't know  why.
He did get past Melanie Troxel in a tire-smoking opening-round  race, winning
with a 5.147-second, 256.94-mph performance to Troxel's 5.819 at  224.25.
Whit Bazemore left the starting line first in the quarterfinals  and lit the win
light with a 4.592 at 327.74 to the FRAM dragster's 4.571 at  328.06.

"The car ran well . . . but I just didn't drive well. But we'll get that worked out before we go to Richmond."
