2016 NHRA Winternationals

Valentine’s Day weekend, NHRA Winternationals
今年も初戦の Winternationals と 最終戦の World Final は MQQNEYES Funny Car で参戦です。
Top Team は事前に Phoenix, Arizona の Raceway でしっかり走って Condition を整えてきますが
そうで無い Team はこのレースが調整兼本番となります。 ですから事前に走って来た Team との差は歴然,
結果は Time にすぐ反映されます。 金土2回づつ計 4回の予選で Jim Dunn Racing は 18台エントリー中
本戦参加になる 16台中、 16位で予選通過、 本戦では予選 の #1 Qualifier (予選 1番) の車と走ったのです。
4.243 に対し 4.231 ですが Reaction Time が 0.079 に対し 0.118 で勝負が決まりました。
その他にも色々あり勝ってレースですが Luck が離れて行った様でした。

NHRA Winternationals was held during Valentine’s Day weekend.
We plan to run the MQQNEYES Funny Car at the first match and last match of the season, Winternationals and World Finals this year again. The top teams actually get to dial things in earlier at the raceway in Phoenix, Arizona but all the other teams have to use the first match of the season to get adjusted so there’s a slight difference between the top teams and others. Scheduled for 2 runs each on Friday and Saturday, 4 runs total, Jim Dunn Racing was one of the 18 Funny Cars entered although only 16 of them ran. The first race was against the #1 Qualifier for Sunday’s eliminations rounds. The elapsed time was a 4.243 against a 4.231 (sec) with a reaction time of 0.079 against a 0.118 (sec). The race was decided off the line.
Although I’m sure there are many factors in racing, luck wasn’t on our side.

As you can see there no Air Scoop on the hood of Pro Stock Car.
(NHRA Pro Stock new rule) It’s now injection (EFI induction systems) from this year, not carburetor.
Looks sleek!

One Week Before the Big Day

NHRA Winternationals が開催される一週間前、 Jim Dunn Racing にガレージを尋ねたら
何ともリラックスした Dad and son が出迎えてくれました。
NHRA でしかも Nitro Funny Car で自分達の会社の Logo が見れるのも彼らのおかげです。
感謝。

It’s one week before the NHRA Winternationals will be held in Pomona, CA. When I went to visit the Jim Dunn Racing garage, I was greeted by a relaxed Dad and son.
I am grateful to them for using our logo on their Nitro Funny Car in the NHRA.
