TOP FUEL FINAL
Final rounds are becoming common
place for Team High Speed, but never taken for granted. This
day would match Mendy Fry with a first time finalist, Dusty Green.
Both California drivers.
Green left first but
that was erased by the 60' block.
Fry left nothing to doubt this
was her race running low e.t. and top speed of the meet at 5.66
- 254.71 to easily defeat Green who finished at 6.04 - 198.73.
Winner, winner chicken dinner.
Not a Kalitta mosh pit
but the crew went into celebration mode.
Next Step - Party
This was Fry's 2nd win in 3 races.
With a runner-up at the season opener she has a commanding points
lead. With only 2 races remaining, the team has all but cinched
the 2018 NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Racing Series Top Fuel Championship.
We pick it up as the car is returned
to the pits. The following shots are what a team that races hard
and plays hard does after a win.
There is a lasting tradition
at High Speed Motorsports that after a win everyone is obliged
to take a swig or three of Crown Royal. In the beginning it was
a fifth in the traditional blue velvet bag. It then went to a
7.50 liter bottle. Do they sell Crown in a 55 gallon drum?
Slightly plied, and well
deserved, the team headed for the Winners Circle.
