Whisnant sets his sights at Pomona.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Mark Whisnant's hopes of qualifying for the 2nd annual AC Delco NHRA Nationals dissolved when he was bumped out of the field in the fourth round of qualifying.

"To say that I am disappointed is an understatement," said Whisnant of Stockbridge, Ga. "We came here knowing that we need to qualify to stay in the top ten in the points.

"As a rookie, finishing the season in the top ten is a big deal. We will not know where we stand until after eliminations tomorrow, but we are not giving up either. Our last race of the season will be in Pomona in two weeks. We will be there, and will give it everything we have.

The race on the 2002 POWERade Drag Racing series will be the 38th annual Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals in Pomona, Calif. November 7-10.
