POMONA, CA. - Two days worth of qualifying are complete for the NHRA AutoZone Winternationals in Pomona, Ca., and Bruce Litton proudly holds a place in the Top Fuel field. The first stop on the 23-event, NHRA/Winston Championship Drag Racing Series tour has been kind to the Wix Filters Top Fuel Dragster presented by The Top Dragster Driving Experience as he currently holds the ninth quickest elapsed time.
The veteran enclosed trailer dealer from Indianapolis, Ind., failed to capitalize on optimum conditions during the Friday afternoon session as he struck the tires and immediately aborted the run.
Litton, who plans to attend several stops on the NHRA/Winston Championship Drag Racing tour in 2000, was disappointed with the outcome of today's attempt. However, he's positive of tomorrow's efforts.
"I guess we got a little greedy," explained Litton. "But, you never know until you give it a shot. My crew is working hard and we'll be back and we'll be better prepared to hammer out a good, clean run."
Litton and the rest of the Top Fuel contingent will continue qualifying for the NHRA AUTOZONE Winternationals tomorrow with two more attempts. Final eliminations are slated for Sunday.
The Top Dragster Driving Experience has retained Litton's team to carry out their marketing program with WIX Filters. Top Dragster Driving Experience President Joel Collins feels the triangle marketing partnership between WIX Filters, his company and Litton's team provides a future example for other teams aspiring to run Top Fuel.
