And we have a win! The team is going crazy!
Jonnie was a like cobra on the tree, and he never gave Kris a chance. Nice to see the Swedish yellow and blue colors in the wind!
—Come on man. Here's your Wally.
Our Norwegian mechanic Christan Merlid looks confident leaving Jonnie alone at the starting line.
And no problem there for Jonnie. Andy's out, and we are in the final.
Jonnie takes down Brian Hough and is on to the semifinals, where he will go up against Andy Bohl. On the other side of the ladder we will see Steve Burck and Kris Hool fight for the final.
This weekend we're in Norwalk, Ohio, for the 10th annual Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals. Jonnie qualified in as number four. But what we all had our minds after the last round, was how's our great friend Steve Harker is after wrecking his Funny Car in a nasty crash right in to the wall. Steve was transported to the hospital and have had some surgery. We'll try to get back with further updates as soon as we know anything more.
