Saturday - Round One of Eliminations

6:00 p.m. The difference between the March Meet and CHRR is that the first round of eliminations is run Saturday evening prior to the Cacklefest program.

 

Murphy, paired with Brendan Murry, was the next to the last pair in the round.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Murry had broken a steering arm backing up from his burnout leaving Murphy with a single.

 

Going for lane choice in round two Murphy left hard and stayed on all eight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Murry's vacant car was left on the track so Murphy didn't get hung out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For the conditions Murphy's 5.976 at 236.84 was a very nice number and good for lane choice over Rick Williamson on Sunday.

Sunday morning Murphy had some time to kick back and visit.

Sunday - Round Two

11:51 a.m. Following the pre race ceremonies, the second round of Top Fuel kicked off under another sunny sky.

 

 

Murphy was paired with Rick Williamson.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both drivers left together.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

From the hit both cars were welded together.

 

 

 

Neither driver took his foot off the throttle until the ET light and what the fans got was simply a great ol' drag race with Williamson nipping Murphy by 0.0094 seconds (approximately 3 feet).

 

 

 

 

In the closest Top Fuel race of the weekend both drivers posted numbers to be proud of. Williamson's 5.867 at 250.06 was just good enough to beat Murphy's 5.870 at 251.18.

 

 

All that was left was to load up and call it a season.

 

 

As they always do, Murphy and the WW2 Racing crew will spend the winter getting the car ready for the March Meet which Murphy is still trying to win for an unprecedented fifth time.
