There is a big Division 3 NHRA race at Indy this weekend. There are several Pontiac powered Stockers there, including a '70 GTO. There are also 1st & 2nd gen Birds, and even a '62 GP, driven by Bob Michael.

The highest qualified Pontiac is a '77 K/SA Bird, driven by Thomas Pettigrew, at #11.

Let The Race begin !

OK, round 1 of Stock is in the books. The 2 Pontiac ladies, with their 1st gen Birds, and Bob Michael, with his '62 GP, made it thru to round 2.

They've run a round of Stock and SS this morning. Randi Lyn Shipp was the only Pontiac powered Stocker to make it thru round 2.

This time I've got good news and bad. The good news is that Randi Lyn cut a better light, ran closer to her dial, and won a double breakout race in round 3 of Stock.

LODRS 3-1 - Stock Eliminator Round 3 Eliminations

The bad news is that Russ Abrams cut a better light, but lost his 2nd round double breakout race, in Super Stock.

In round 4, Randi Lyn cut a .015 light and ran right on her 10.56 dial, for the win.

She made it to the quarter-final round. But there, she broke out and lost to one of the 9 sec late model cars.

But, she drove a great race and went more rounds than any of the other Pontiacs. So, congrats to Randi Lyn for representing Pontiac Power very well indeed !

Missed One

Well, it looks like I missed one of the Pontiac powered cars at Indy. It was the '81 GP, driven by Ken MacNicol. It runs in the 10.90 Super Street class. Ken made it to the 4th round. So congrats to Ken for driving a good race.

#4 x 2

Randi Lyn picked it up a little, with a 10.42, and wound up in the #4 qualifying position.

In the division 5 race, in Kansas, Carroll Warling qualified #4, in Super Stock, with his record holding SS/MA '74 Grand Am. Qualifying at the div 6 race was rained out.

Shucks !

Well, I hate to report bad news. But I'm afraid all 3 Pontiacs got put out in the 1st round this morning.

ATLANTA - Stock Eliminator Round 1 Eliminations

But, there are still some Pontiacs racing at the division races. We got at least 4 Pontiac Stockers in the div 3 race at Norwalk. Tommy Pettigrew has the highest qualified Pontiac, with his '77 Bird. Then we have Julie Biermann and Brent Flynn with their E/SA '68 Birds. And Bob Michael is entered with his '62 GP.
