Drag Racing List News Flash - Kuhlmann Backs up 6.00, but no Fives

September 17 (Columbus, Ohio) DRL Executive Field Editor Bret Kepner called today with a follow-up to Bill Kuhlmann's world-rocking performance at Super Chevy Columbus yesterday. In today's action, Kuhlmann lined up his Summit Racing '68 Corvette Nitro Coupe in round one and shot to a 6.06 at only 210 mph! The eighth mile times on the run were quicker and faster than on yesterday's 6.00 at 234 (3.90, 190, compared to yesterday's 3.92, 189), but the Summit Racing Corvette couldn't hold it together for the five. Round two produced an outstanding (albeit now disappointing) 6.12 at 229 mph. In the final, tire shake set in and held the Summit Corvette to a 6.30. Needless to say, the entire drag racing world will be focused on the next Super Chevy Series race, October 6-8 at Virginia Motorsports Park.
