Torco Racing Fuels Route 66 NHRA Nationals
Traction trouble hurts Bernstein
Driver Brandon Bernstein qualified in the No. 12 position, 4.616/325.30.
In the first round of eliminations, Bernstein faced off against David Grubnic. Both drivers lost traction down track and were on and off the throttle trying to get power to the ground. Grubnic crossed the finish line first, 5.132/284.15 to Bernsteinís 5.936/173.54.
ďAs a driver, you have to be ready to pedal the throttle when itís hot and the track is slick,Ē said Bernstein. ďBut sometimes you canít settle the car down quickly enough to get it hooked up again. It was a challenging and exciting run, but itís no fun when you lose.Ē
Bernstein remains seventh in NHRA Top Fuel point standings.
