TAFC   33 TODD PATON                            No show     
   Paton lost fire in the left lane and gave it to          
   Newberry.  Let's say Newberry was surprised (RT!!).

TAFC    5 RANDY ANDERSON      0.487          5.773  234.61  
   Anderson lets the blower loose at the top end and JUST   
   gets beat.  Great race!  Bartone's 28th straight.        

Sunday-Round 4 - Alcohol Funny Car        -Left lane first- 
1996 NHRA Virgina Nationals by Joe Sprys

TAFC    4 TONY BARTONE        0.447          5.731  250.34W 
   Newberry cuts a .408 light and it looked like Bartone    
   might go down - no way, it's #29!!
