#1, #2, & #17, qualifiers at the US Nationals are 4 cylinders!

The US Nationals at Indy this week allows the top 128 stock class cars to compete. The following are the 4 and 6 cyl cars that are qualified:

#1 Steven Pohill in EF/S - 98 cubic in 82 Ford Escort / 16.339 et
#2 Ronald Seibenick EF/S - 140 cubic in 84 Mercury Topaz / 16.468 et
#17 Jimmy Malone CF/S - 153 cubic in 91 Dodge Shadow / 14.298 et
# 61 Bill Owen BF/S - 207 cubic in 00 Pontiac Grand Am / 13.893 et

These 4 will be racing against 124 V8s...I wish them luck.

Tim Kish in a 99 Dodge Neon 123 cubic in non-turbo is qualified in the tougher super stock class....the only 4 banger ot there with a 13.40 pass in SS/GS.
He was the # 115 qualifyer out of the 128 that will compete.

A note about Steve Pohill....e professionally drag races that Escort for a living, and even though it's slow, he has won several national events against the big dogs!

As far as my 05 Neon SRT4....in stock configuration I would not have been able to make the field....with my quickest pass I would have been in # 168 spot, way out of the top 128....but my 31 mpg would have been the best!

Well...darn it...all of the stock cars except the V6 of Bill Owen lost 1st round...he lost second.

The super stockers run tomorrow....so Tim Kish still has a chance in his 99 neon.
