Default Hodgson Scores Track Record at Firebird

HODGSON BLISTERS TRACK RECORD AT FIREBIRD SATURDAY

On a cold and windy day, Ryan Hodgson from Sturgeon County, Alberta, unleashed yet another new awe inspiring track record. With 20 mph headwinds, Hodgson drove his `68 Camaro Funny Car to a 5.60 elapsed time at 260.97 miles per hour to lead all qualifiers. The fastest field in Firebird history (first all 5-second class) saw Cameron Ferre just make the cut with a 5.93, alongside of Wally Giavia who ran 5.99, but ended up first alternate.
Tony Franco, Oxnard, Calif., recorded the event's quickest run. Driving his colorful Lucas Oil Jet Dragster, Franco ran 5.58-266.16 along side a 5.87-261.37 by Mark Stevens, Aarvada, Colo.
