PARKERTECH TEAM WINS U.S. NATIONALS
It's the Granddaddy of them all, The Big One, The Big Go. National
Dragster's Brad Littlefield summed up the story quite well. He said:
The Parkertech Team's weekend featured a remarkable progression.
Qualifiying started with a 5.74/253 that placed us 10th. We thought we were
off to a decent start. But a nice 5.63 at a booming 257 in the second
session had us in the top half and in high spirits. The teams ahead of us
were mostly Top 5 guys. Then the stage was set in session 3. Manzo was
having trouble in qualifying and was relagated to an unfamiliar position in
the front of the line. He shook and shut off. Steve Harker then stepped up
with a stellar 5.580 that went right to the top position. Mick Snyder was
up. Announcer Alan Reinhart informed the crowd that Mick was more than
capable of being low qualifier. His great 5.586 only matched, but did not
better, his previous attempt. Now it was our turn. We were paired with the
feared (and rightly so, they won it last year) team of Rick Jackson with
driver Tony Bartone.
