Clint Hairston remained the king of the hill after the first round of eliminations at the NMCA/NMRA Super Bowl.
Hairston, by virtue of a faster mile per hour, was the low elapsed time winner of the opening round when he turned in a 6.069-second run to defeat Scott Christoffel.
The determining factor was his 244.52 speed which enabled him to win the tiebreaker over John Sullivan, who also ran a 6.069 but only ran 236.34 to defeat Hector Laracuent.
Hairston meets Tony Williams in the second round while Sullivan meets most recent NHRA Pro Modified winner Donnie Walsh.
Other first round winners included Mario Orsimi (Clint Satterfield), Dan Stevenson (Jeff Lutz), Steve Matusek (Bill Lutz) and Chris Rini (Dan Bills).
Heads-up eliminations resume at 12 Noon, CST.
The Super Street Outlaw division only had three entries for this weekend and all three John Urist, Phil Hines and Fred Whitcomb will race off later on Sunday. Urist has a bye run into the final round.
The Nostalgia Pro Street division is eliminated down to six cars and by virtue of the competition ladder, David Beeson and Darren Breaud will advance via bye runs into the semis. Skip Baskin will meet Joe Colleta, while Joe Bucaro meets Rob White.
Mike Murrilo was in a zip code of his own in Pro 10.5W by running low elapsed time of the first round, a 6.646, to beat Enzo Pecchini. Murillo will meet Mikey Rees, who beat Frank Meyshaw. Other quarter-final matches include David Demarco versus Tim Essick; Tony Nesbitt races Steve Summers and 84-year old Willard Kinzer squares off against Eric LaFerraiere.
