Scelzi drives to No. 12
Las Vegas, Saturday: Gary Scelzi, who failed to qualify last weekend in
The reigning NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series Funny Car champion clocked in with a 4.813-second elapsed time at 323.97 mph in the second round of qualifying. The bad news is is that the other three qualifying rounds (10.545/74.68, 10.422/79.78 and a 9.124/90.17 in the final pass) were still problematic, giving Scelzi and crew chief Mike Neff cause for concern.
"We're in the field, so we have one more shot to get this thing fixed," said Scelzi, who faces Tommy Johnson Jr. in the first round of eliminations on Sunday. "We'll just go up there and take a shot at TJ and see if we can make this thing not shake. If it doesn't shake and it doesn't smoke the tires at 60 feet it will haul ass.
"But that IF is a big word right now and there's a lot of issues that I think are coming into play. We're going to work on some things, make some changes and hopefully it will work tomorrow."
