PART-TIMER LUCAS DERAILS KALITTA'S TOP FUEL MOMENTUM

Written by Susan Wade.

The Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals Top Fuel final Sunday came down to two racers who both have a fondness for the track in the rustic Minnesota northwoods, near Brainerd.  

Morgan Lucas made his professional debut here in 2004, a decade ago as a 20-year-old, driving for Joe Amato, the five-time series champion who won at Brainerd International Raceway a class-best six times. But he had won here in the Top Alcohol Dragster final in 2004, the same day close pal Eric Medlen won in Funny Car. (Less than three years later, Lucas would be a pallbearer for Medlen, and this past week marked what would have been Medlen's 41st birthday.) Moreover, this is a race that carries title sponsorship of his family business, the one he stepped away from fulltime racing to learn.

Doug Kalitta had been partial to Brainerd because of his 2003 and 2005 victories and his 2000 runner-up finish here. And he was on the verge of claiming his fourth No. 1 start here Saturday, when Antron Brown – his closest challenger for the points lead - ambushed him by two-thousandths of a second in the last qualifying session. Besides, team owner and uncle Connie Kalitta, as well as Connie's son and Doug's cousin Scott, always had performed well here.

CAPACITY CROWDS WATCHES AS TULSA CROWNS PDRA UNDER THE LIGHTS WINNERS

Written by Ian Tocher; Photos by Roger Richards, Ian Tocher.

PDRA PN HarrisIn front of its biggest crowd of the year, the Professional Drag Racers Association (PDRA) held its inaugural Under the Lights event at Osage Casino Tulsa Raceway Park (TRP).

"We couldn't be happier with the PDRA's debut here," said track co-owner Todd Martin, who estimated two-day attendance at more than 25,000 fans. Though the race began at 6 p.m. Saturday evening to beat the heat of a typical Oklahoma summertime, five hours later there remained lines of cars stretching a mile in either direction waiting to enter the TRP property. At 2:40 a.m., the final pair of cars went down the TRP eighth mile to close out the landmark event.

"We had a great crowd, full of families and people just wanting to have a good time and I think we delivered on that," Martin said. "And the staff and racers of the PDRA put on an excellent show. I think they (PDRA) were a little concerned about how many cars would make the trip out here, but we had about 160 total entries, which is very much in line with what's been showing up at the previous races. Really, I don't think it could've gone much better, to be honest."

John Force and Ron Capps will have their Brainerd score settled during the Q2 session in Indianapolis during the NHRA U.S. Nationals. The victory could provide the jumpstart for one of the two to possibly win three events over the course of the weekend if they can also gather in victories during the Traxxas Funny Car Shootout on Sunday, and Monday's Indy title.
