    I'm so sorry! Posting the results from the SpringNationals completely slipped away from me. I didn't realize it until a I saw a post from 'Budnick' (FBBO) today.
    I apologize for the delay.

    Congratulations to both 'alsant' (FBBO) and 'cuda20' (FABO) for sharing the "Top Picker Eliminator" crown for the 2021 Mopar Express Lane NHRA SpringNationals, the 5th event of the 2021 season. They both had an outstanding total of 116.5 points with class wins in both Top Fuel and Funny Car. Their Pro Stock pick lost in the 2nd round of eliminations. They were both helped with ET bonus points in Pro Stock.
    'stroked340' (FABO) grabbed the runner-up spot for the second event in a row, this time with 112.5 points.


    Here's where the bonus points were earned if you picked the right drivers:

    Top Fuel
    E.T. - Billy Torrence, 3.694 during Round 1 of eliminations
    Speed - Billy Torrence, 329.50 during Round 1 of eliminations

    Funny Car
    E.T. - Ron Capps, 3.894 during Round 1 of eliminations

    Speed - Bob Tasca III, 332.53 during qualifying

    Pro Stock
    E.T. - Greg Anderson, 6.539 during Round 1 of eliminations
    Speed - Matt Hartford, 210.41 during qualifying

          Congratulations to 'Nick2317' (FBBO) for winning the 2021 NHRA New England Nationals Top Qualifier title with a very nice total of 22.5 bonus points. He picked Budnicks' picked the #1 qualifier in both Funny Car and Pro Stock, and the #4 qualifier in Top Fuel. Way to go!
          'Budnicks' (FBBO), 'shittyslant6' (FABO) and 'stroked340' (FABO) share the #2 qualifier spot with 22.0 points each. More great picks!

          We have 14 players this week and 11 different driver combos made up of:
          * 4 different Top Fuel drivers with one Round 1 head-to-head matchup between #6 qualifier Antron Brown (2 pick) and #7 qualifier Brittany Force (1 pick).
          * 6 different Funny Car drivers. The earliest possibility of a head-to-head matchup would be Round 2 of eliminations if both drivers survive Round 1.
          * 4 different Pro Stock drivers. The earliest possibility of a head-to-head matchup would be Round 2 of eliminations if both drivers survive Round 1.

          Fixed it! I should have paid more attention when copying and revising an earlier posting.

              Remember when?

              There's a good article by Phil Burgess on nhra.com today about the 900 NHRA Funny Car event milestone that was hit last weekend. The article leads off with this great shot from one of the big car count funny car events at OCIR. I don't know if this pic is from one of the Manufacturer Meets or one of their 64 funny car events.
              Chances are, I was there and not too far from where this pic was shot since this is from the pitside grandstands.
              Enjoy...

                Here's your 'Tuesday before the event' reminder for the upcoming Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park in Norwalk, OH. This is the seventh event of the 2021 season.
                The Summit Nationals first round of professional qualifying is scheduled for Friday, June 25 at 7:00PM EDT (4:00PM PDT). Two additional rounds of professional qualifying are scheduled for Saturday, June 26.
                Current forecast is calling for high temps of 82F at the start of Friday qualifying with a 24% chance of some moisture, 83F on Saturday and 85F Sunday with a chance of light rain both days.
                NHRA.com had a little glitch earlier and wouldn't show the current count for the Pro classes.
                I just checked again and found:
                * 18 Top Fuel
                * 18 Funny Car
                * 20 Pro Stock
                * 21 Pro Stock Motorcycle

                As always, check the entry lists (NHRA National Event Entry Statistics) to make sure your driver pick is racing.

                Post your picks and let's go racing!

                  FRIDAY QUALIFYING TIME UPDATE!!!

                  Because of late evening weather concerns, Q1 for the Professional classes have been moved up to 5:30PM EDT (2:30PM PDT) today.
                  Please get your picks posted before the updated start time for Q1 if you haven't already done so.
                  We were still missing picks from a couple of players as of this morning. They were notified via PM.
