Cannon qualifies No. 13 in Pomona Finale

POMONA, Calif. (Nov. 8, 2003) - Scotty Cannon experienced engine problems in the final two rounds of Funny Car qualifying for the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals but still managed to reach the finish line, first in 5.101 seconds at 236.13 mph, and then in 4.921 seconds at 305.15 mph in the final run.

This dropped his Oakley Time Bomb Dodge Stratus Funny Car down to No. 13 in the field, based on his solid 4.872/314.31 pass on Thursday.

"We threw a rod out of it the last two runs," he said. "We don't know what happened. We had a strong run on Thursday, but, although we ran some decent times today, we couldn't improve on those results.

"We'll work on it tonight and see if we can figure it out and be ready for tomorrow's final eliminations. We know this car is good and capable of running high .70s or low .80s, so that's what we're aiming for."

Cannon will meet Del Worsham in the first round of final eliminations tomorrow.
