NHRA's Top Fuel Battle To Go The Distance

National Hot Rod Association: Darrel Russell beat Kenny Bernstein in the final round of Top Fuel to win the AC Delco Las Vegas Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Despite Russell's victory, Bernstein will carry a 54-point lead over Larry Dixon as the NHRA heads for the final weekend of the season at Pomona.

Mark Pawuk won his first Pro Stock final of the season when he beat former pro basketball star Tom Hammonds. Pawuk scored his first victory of the 2001 campaign.

Ron Capps defeated Bob Gilbertson in the final round of Funny Car. But the most memorable Funny Car race came earlier in the day when both John Force and Bob Bode were disqualified for starting their runs before the race-starting light sequence started.

Goodyear's Bo Butner edged David Rampy at the finish to win the Competition Eliminator final.
