Persistant rain shortened qualifying to just one round in the Schuck's NHRA Nationals in Seattle with the UPS sponsored Top Fuel dragster of Bob Vandergriff again settling in at the number eight spot with a 4.68 ET in the quarter mile at 307.51 MPH. He will face #9 qualifier, Melanie Troxel, the number 1 qualifier at Denver a week ago in the first round. Vandergriff, currently # 6 in NHRA Powerade points, needs to continue to go rounds to stay in the top eight for his chance to race in the top four after the Reading, PA event and, unltimately, go into the final for the championship. Watch for outstanding coverage on UPSers.com...er, no, maybe NOT!!!!!! They still got minimal coverage from the NJ race....now, more than a month ago!!!!! They really care!!!!!
