Top Fuel @ Calder Park ~ FUCHS Nitro Thunder
In front of over 7000 Melbourne race fans, the ANDRA Drag Racing Series
marked its return after 12 years away from Australia's sporting capital
with thrilling action across three ANDRA pro categories.
Morgan defeated event debutante John Lamattina in a close fought final with
Morgan's 4.322 narrowly defeating a 4.556 from Lamattina.
Morgan paid credit to his crew for their efforts not just at Fuchs Nitro
Thunder presented by Crow Cams but across the whole season.
"This crew has been amazing not just today but every time they go to work
on this car," he said. "(Crew chief) Ben Patterson took a bit of a stab at
the tune up today after we had an ignition shut off on one run and then a
seized fuel pump in a warm up and sure enough it went down there -- he got
it right and to do that twice in one day is full credit to him.
"In the run before the final I was on the hand brake trying to keep
traction so Ben calmed it down for the final and it sailed on through."
Morgan defeated chief championship rival Phil Lamattina in the first
elimination round and with 74 points now separating the pair, qualifying
fifth or better at the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway in two weeks
would mean Morgan wraps up his fourth Top Fuel title.
"Championship wise it is what it is, we take the punches as we swing them,"

fireball in the second half of the pass. Car still ran 4.90, but had more
speed at half track than at the finish. Next pass was more steady and much
faster - 311mph (501kph) in a
virtual dead heat with Phil Lamattina. 4.806 vs 4.808. TOP FUEL is
