While Florida's Adam Louramore has been the one to beat in the BFGoodrich Drag Radial ranks, Phil Clemmons of Sandstone, Virginia, has come on strong in the last half of the season. Clemmons made quick work of Mike King to win the Richmond race, and he qualified number one for Bristol with an 8.19 effort.

Back in the Street Outlaw saddle, Chip Havemann of San Antonio, Texas, qualified with a personal best of 7.56 seconds. We'll be expecting more from this mean machine as Havemann is still fine-tuning the twin-turbo powerplant.

Got fuel?
A little Urist Racing birdie told Chip Havemann that two injectors per cylinder would solve his lean condition at high rpm. So far it has worked, as the Mustang gets faster with every pass.

Alburtis, Pennsylvania's Ben Hopko took his twin-turbocharged Probe to the Fun Ford Richmond makeup Victory Circle. It was a tight final round against Aruba native Burt Kelkboom, who ran a 6.89 to Hopko's 6.84 pass.
