SATURDAY - ELIMINATIONS ROUND ONE

 

Pair three of session one was #2 qualifier Jim Murphy vs #10 Julius Hughes who was in on the break rule for Dave Miller.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both drivers left together, Murphy carding strong early numbers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In this case the paper proved to be foretelling as the Murphy train lengthened the lead over Hughes for a 5.723 at 245.72 win light,

 

 

 

ELIMINATIONS 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 Boise in August.

 

 

 

Back to the pit to get it serviced for the fianl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TOP FUEL FINAL

 

The final featured a pair of Jim's, Murphy and Young, the #1 & #2 qualifiers. Both driving Neal & Parks race cars, One a seasoned vet, the other a young gun. West coast fans for Murphy, East coast fans for Young. Oh, and both cars are green. A perfect match up.

 

 

 

As pre arranged, Young did his burnout first.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Young left first but it was short lived.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Murphy, who was the most consistent Top Fuel car all weekend, ran another 5.713 at 257.33 (his best speed of the meet). Young gave it a shot with a 5.920 at 253.56. Could have used his 5.61 qualifying time.

Murphy not only took the long overdue win but also overcame Fry for the points lead. Gonna be a fun season.

 

 

 

 

 

We'll close with some candid Winners Circle.
