Default Three Toyotas Advance to Second Round at NHRA Summernationals

“That was just racing,” said Kalitta. “A second-round loss - that’s one of those deals that you just hope doesn’t happen. We had a pretty strong run in going from A to B. We were right there. Overall, it was good having Osborn on the car with us this weekend. I love running this place. We’ll just keep our heads down and move on to the next one.” Doug Kalitta Before the rain set in, upsets ruled the day in Top Fuel, as three drivers seeded eighth and above advanced to the semifinals. Despite the early exit, Kalitta remains on top of the Top Fuel point standings with a 95-point advantage over second place. Brown is currently sixth. After qualifying in the top five on Saturday, both Shawn Langdon and Tony Schumacher were upset in the opening round. In Funny Car, Todd began the day seeded fifth and defeated Jim Campbell before losing to Matt Hagan in round two. Alexis DeJoria and Alex Miladinovich each were defeated in their opening runs of the day. “These guys going to the later rounds like Hagan are throwing out big numbers and it shows that the track is capable of holding it,” said Todd. “We just need to figure out how to run with those guys. We’re showing consistency, but we just need that little more to win these rounds and gain some points. The biggest thing is we’re not gaining on the guys in front of us. The DHL Toyota guys have come a long way in these two races. Hopefully, when we come back here for the third race, we will be in contention to win.” J.R. Todd The Mello Yello Drag Racing Series is scheduled to return to Lucas Oil Raceway for the NHRA Indy Nationals, Aug 8-9.
