Bob Vandergriff ran a very impressive 4.51 at 329.91 MPH to put him in the # 3 qualifiying spot for Monday's eliminations at the Mac Tools NHRA US Nationals at O'Reilly Raceway Park (just can't get used to that name!). Bob has a special 100 yr commemoration paint job on his Top Fuel dragster made completely out of aluminum from the first UPS airplane! Vandergriff will face a very strong T.J. Zizzo, who ran a career best, 4.57, in the first round. Interestingly, one of the 8 in the Countdown to the Championship, Whit Bazemore, did not qualify. That will hurt! John Force, in Funny Car, another surprising DNQ! BUT, former UPSer, Max Naylor, qualified #1 in PRO STOCK! I usually ain't too cranked on PS but will be watching this one. Congrats to Bob and Max and good luck this afternoon!
