SATURDAY

 

The calm before the storm.

 

 

 

 

Moving the car out of the pit and off to the staging lanes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ruthie Hedge gave her signature rendition of the National Anthem followed immediately by the first pair of Top Fuel.

 

 

ELIMINATIONS - ROUND ONE

 

 

 

 

Pair two matched Dusty Green in the Nitro Hemi car and Mendy Fry. #6 vs #3.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Green had problems before half track as Fry motored by for the win with a 5.716 at 258.47. Green slowed to a 6.175 at 186.74. Fry advanced to the semis.

 

 

 

 

 

The engine hurt itself in round one which made for an all hands on board swap led by Darrel Read, Rick Shelar and Sean Bellemeur.

 

 

 

 

Tom Shelar tended to the clutch.

 

 

Donnie Ho repaird the cylinder heads.

 

Mendy packed her chutes before mixing the nitro.

 

 

 

 

The injured engine was lifted out the old fashion way, by hand.

 

 

 

 

Then it was the whole process in reverse to install the new engine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new engine is warmed and set. Time for round two.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first pair out for the semis had huge points implications pitting Mendy Fry, the leader and Jim Murphy sitting in the #2 position. It was also a rematch of the 2017 March Meet final that was taken by Fry when Murphy broke on the burnout.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Murphy got a slight jump off the line and never looked back.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Murphy got there first with a 5.730 at 240.08 while Fry was right there with a game 5.817 at a big mph, 260.21. A rubber match is more than possible at the Boise Nightfire Nationals in August.
