PAUL ROMINE’S DAY ENDS IN ROUND ONE AT PHOENIX

CHANDLER, AZ (Sunday, Feb. 28, 1999) – The CARQUEST Top Fuel dragster with Paul Romine lost in the opening round of the NHRA CSK Nationals at Firebird Int’l Raceway.

Romine faced Joe Amato and Amato had too much power, running 4.558/321.04 to Romine’s cylinder dropping 4.766/294.82.

“It would have been nice to get a round win, but I’m pleased with our overall effort this weekend,” Romine said. “We have a baseline now to work with heading into Darlington and by the time we get to Gainesville, hopefully we will be able to continue the progression to lower elapsed times.”

The next event for the CARQUEST team will be the IHRA season opening Winter Nationals, March 12-14 in Darlington, SC. The next NHRA event for Paul Romine will be the Mac Tools Gatornationals, March 18-21 in Gainesville, Fla.
