RaceRedi Pontiac leaves starting line first

RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 12, 2008 -- Justin Humphreys and crew chief Frank Gugliotta were scratching their heads Sunday after Humphreys' opening round Pro Stock loss to Allen Johnson in the Virginia Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park.

Humphreys had the better reaction time, .032 to .048-second, but his RaceRedi Motorsports Pontiac GXP couldn't hold the advantage and Johnson drove away to the win in 6.575 seconds at 209.01 mph. Humphreys wasn't far behind with his 6.602 at 207.94.

"There's something wrong with our car . . . and we don't know what is," Humphreys said. "Something may be bound up in the car. We changed everything on it Saturday night, trying to cure the problem, but it made no difference. We are planning to stay here Monday and test."

Only two races remain on the 2008 NHRA's POWERade Series schedule -- at Las Vegas, Oct. 31-Nov. 2, and at Pomona, Calif., Nov. 13-16.
