Romine rockets to the pole at the IHRA Prolong World Nationals

NORWALK, OHIO (August 28,1998) -- Paul Romine and the CARQUEST Top Fuel dragster dramically rocketed to the top time Saturday night at the IHRA Prolong Super Lubricants World Nationals at Norwalk Raceway Park, Norwalk, Ohio.

Under the Norwalk lights, Romine blazed to a 4.720/296.54 top qualifying time.

"We ran another .80 earlier in the day and tonight we just wanted to see what the track could handle," Romine said. "Last year we ran that .70 and the .78s so we knew the track could hold the number if the conditions we right. It blistered the tires tonight, but it got to the other end and we didn't hurt anything so we're happy with that."

In round one of eliminations scheduled for 12 noon Sunday, Romine will face Jack Ostrander.
