Amalie Oil North American Nationals
New England Dragway
Epping, N.H.
Qualifying Dates: September 5-6, 2003

Charles Carpenter, owner/driver 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air (Pro Modified class, nitrous)

Fastest Qualifying Run: 6.383 seconds (Qualifying Session 2, Friday)
Top Qualifying Speed: 222.00 mph (Qualifying Session 2, Friday)

Notes:

- Last weekend at a match race in Eddysville, Iowa, Carpenter won the event and set a new track record. Unfortunately, this weekend wasn't as kind as he missed qualifying for the elimination rounds.

Charles Carpenter Quote:

"It's the clutch. It's always the clutch this year. We are so close, but we had the clutch set a couple of grams off and that made a big difference. The front-end got too high and the car wanted to go left. I think I could have driven through it but the clutch setup caused the tires to shake in second gear."
