BOISE, Idaho - SUMMIT FastNews - Notes from final, round 3 qualifying in Federal-Mogul Dragster at the 29th Annual Auto Parts N Stuff Ignitor listing lane, driver name, elapsed time/top speed this round, position in order following run, best prior elapsed time/speed, and position in order prior to run: Left Lane: Duane Sheilds Runs 5.860/237.46, Now #5; Best prior run: 5.838/238.22, Was #5 Right Lane: Gary Ormsby Jr. Runs 6.160/186.68, Now #7; Best prior run: 5.985/222.77, Was #7 Shields shook, then pedaled, Ormsby lost a blower belt just past half track. Left Lane: Steve Federlin Runs 5.805/239.55, Now #4; Best prior run: 5.830/239.42, Was #4 Right Lane: Gary Anderson Runs 6.580/213.77, Now #8; Best prior run: 6.093/227.73, Was #8 Federlin improves, but not enough to move past Hentges, who isn't running this round. Anderson had a part come off the car, whatever it was it was round, and it bounced around for quite awhile! Left Lane: Mike Strasburg Runs 5.799/234.61, Now #4; Best prior run: 5.852/242.26, Was #6 Right Lane: Mike Mchargue Runs 6.365/176.35, Now #9; Best prior run: 7.063/127.78, Was #9 Strasburg did a great job of driving here, the car moved left, but he stayed with it, and moves up two spots. .940 60-foot time for the Lindon Utah driver. Mchargue improves to another career best, but he had to pedal a couple of times going down the tr ack. Left Lane: Rick Santos Runs 5.590/252.45, Now #1; Best prior run: 5.639/248.24, Was #2 Right Lane: Melanie Troxel Runs 5.740/245.70, Now #2; Best prior run: 5.636/248.55, Was #1 Last round Melanie had to tug on the brake when the tires started to shake, this round should be better according to the crew. Instead it's Santo's who runs close to Rick Henkleman's track record, recording our first fifty of the event, and getting top speed of the meet so far. Troxel had at least one dropped cylinder in the A fuel dragster on that run. Results provided by the FastNews Network, courtesy of Summit Racing Equipment ** http://www.summitracing.com/ **
