2018 NHRA Winternationals

2018年シーズンの初戦, NHRA Winternationalsは先週末Pomona, CAで開催されました。
レースの結果はと言うと、予選20台中16位, 本戦(Elimination)に進めるのは16台なのでギリギリで
走っていたJohn Force’s Carがゴール近くで突然爆発!と言うHappeningもありそのお陰で
普段は露出の少ない(勝つ事があまりない為)Jim Dunn Racing/MQQNEYES Funny Carを
日曜日のElimination(本戦)では予選16番のJDR/MQQNEYES Funny CarとLow Qualifier(予選1番-Matt Hagan)が対戦
残念ながらと言うか順当に予選1番が勝ち、優勝もMatt Hagan。

The first race of 2018 series, NHRA Winternationals was held in Pomona, Ca last weekend.
One year is fast!
The result of the race is 16th out of 20 cars.

16 cars can go in the Elimination and just barely past the qualifying.

On Friday and Saturday there are 2 sessions of qualifying race and on Friday’s second qualify John Force’s F/C who was running at the track beside suddenly exploded near the goal!
On Sunday’s Elimination 16th JDR/MQQNEYES Funny Car and Low Qualifier (1st place in Qualify-Matt Hagan) competed.

Unfortunately, actually, as it is Qualifier 1st place won and the winner at this race was Matt Hagan.
At the qualifying race, all the car in 1st ~ 14th place was around 3 second and 15th & 16th was around 4 second and eventually got harsh.
It is really difficult.
