Getting ready for battle Sunday morning

 

 

 

 

 

Round 1 Eliminations

 

The first round of Top Fuel went off after the opening ceremonies. Murphy was paired with Rick McGee.

 

 

 

 

Both drivers left together, Murphy had great early numbers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was all Murphy and his 5.629 at 254.57 earned him a date with Bill Dunlap in the semis.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Top Fuel Round 2

 

The semi-finals found two quality cars squaring off to see who would go to the final. Murphy and Bill Dunlap in the High Speed Motorsports car. These are the two oldest drivers in NTF.

 

 

 

 

 

Murphy got a full tenth on the tree leaving Dunlap to play catch up.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the traps, try as he did, Dunlap could not overcome the early deficit. Murphy carded a 5.642 at 245.18 holeshot win. Dunlap ran the quickest pass in High Speed Motorsports history, a 5.617 at 257.63 but it wasn't enough. Murphy's MOV: 0.0660 seconds (approximately 20 feet).

 

 

 

 

 

Top Fuel Final

 

The Top Fuel final pitted the two quickest cars in the field, the #1 & #2 qualifiers. Jim Murphy and Tony Bartone and this one was for all the marbles.

Who ever won would capture not only the CHRR title but also the 1916 Top Fuel Championship.

 

 

 

Bartone got a starting line advantage and went on to an easy win.

 

Murphy experienced a broken fuel line at the hit that showered him in nitro (see photos) and as it got worse he was forced to shut off.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the end of the day Jim Murphy, Roland Leong and Dan Wilkison along with the WW2 Racing team were excited that the car is now competitive with anyone and the parts attrition is down. It was a good year overall and they just missed the championship.

Already looking forward to the 2017 March Meet. Until then Jim would like to thank all the fans that keep an old guy coming back for more of what he loves to do.
