Records Fall in NHRA Winternationals At Pomona

POMONA, Calif. (Feb. 29, 2004) -- Jerry Toliver qualified 15th and then won the Funny Car class in the NHRA Powerade season opener at Pomona Raceway.

The event was delayed a week by rain storms that soaked Southern California for nearly a week, but when the teams returned, the Goodyear tires used by the three top classes helped produce stunning performances.

Toliver was timed at 4.738 seconds and clocked at 328.22 mph in his semi-final race, the fourth-fastest Funny Car run of all time.

Greg Anderson set a Pro Stock track record in the first round when he produced a 6.706-second, 206.123 mph pass. Anderson won the Pro Stock title by defeating Warren Johnson in the final round.

Tony Schumacher collected his 12th career victory when he won the Top Fuel class. Schumacher faced Doug Kalitta in the final round, but Kalitta's car was struck by mechanical trouble on the starting line.
