Pontiac Performance NHRA Nationals
Bazemore continues to improve, grabs No. 4
Bazemore's best pass of the weekend, a 4.741-second elapsed time at 327.11 mph, came in the cool Friday evening session. His other runs include a 4.847/311.49, a 6.710/126.71 and a 4.804/321.96.
"It's a really good effort all the way around," he said. "The Matco Tools team is doing a tremendous job, the car is running very competitively and we're in a good position.
"To me it shows the effort and the ability that everyone has put in and it's all good. We tuned the car that last run to finish today's earlier run, and basically it did. The car is consistently responding well to input and that's what it takes.
"You have to have a car that does what you tell it to do and our car is doing that right now. Todd (Okuhara) and Brian (Corradi) have a lot of confidence, and when the crew chiefs have a lot of confidence, the driver ends up having a lot of confidence, so we're feeling good."
Bazemore faces Bob Gilbertson in first round of eliminations on Sunday.
