MONDAY FINAL - HILLARY
WILL WINS IHRA TOP FUEL DEBUT AT SKULL SHINE
Hillary Will first visited an IHRA eMax Drag Racing Series national event earlier this season in Milan, Mich. She came to support teammate Doug Kalitta, who was driving cousin Scott Kalitta’s Nitro Funny Car at the Suzuki Motor City Nationals.
She had so much fun she decided to try her hand at IHRA racing as well, so when the series came to Norwalk, a couple of hours from her home in Ypsilanti, Mich., Will went racing. At her first IHRA event, the Skull Shine World Nationals presented by ACDelco, Will took home her first national event victory in any series by knocking off Doug Foley in the Knoll Gas-Torco Racing Fuels Pro Nitro Top Fuel final.
Will ran a 4.624 at 314.75 mph in the final to become just the third woman in IHRA history to win a Knoll Gas-Torco Racing Fuels Pro Nitro Top Fuel Ironman, joining Shirley Muldowney and Rhonda Hartman-Smith in the exclusive “girl’s only” club. The last time a woman won a Top Fuel Ironman was in 1998, when Muldowney defeated Luigi Novelli in the final at the Parts Pro Summer Nationals in Morocco, Ind.
“I didn’t realize that,” Will said when she was told she was just the third woman to win a Top Fuel event on the IHRA side. “That makes me really proud…especially since I know that Shirley raced here.”
Muldowney, a legend and pioneer in the sport, is from Ypsilanti, Mich. as well.
Toronto resident Ray Commisso has been racing in the Torco’s CompetitionPlus.com Pro Modified class for over three seasons. Before the Skull Shine World Nationals he had never even qualified for an IHRA Pro Mod field event. At Norwalk Raceway Park not only did Comimisso qualify, he defeated Mike Janis in the final to capture an Ironman. Commisso posted a solid 6.126/232.35 in the final to defeat a tire-shaking Janis.
“IHRA Pro Mod, without a doubt, is the toughest Pro Mod field in the world,” Commisso said. “Just to come here and be beside all these guys I’ve looked up to my whole life, to race against them in qualifying and win the event is like a dream come true. I really don’t know what to say. I’m so overwhelmed we’re even here.”
Pete Berner won his second Torco’s CompetitionPlus.com Ironman of the season by defeating current points leader Tony Gillig in the final at Norwalk Raceway Park. Berner nosed Gillig with a 6.443 pass at 214.18 mph to top Gillig’s 6.472/211.20 pass.
“We’re coming along,” Berner said. “Tony is a really good racer, his dad and I are really close and Tony and I are really close. They have a really good team and you have to be prepared when you race them. We’ve been pretty fortunate. We have great power and have a great car here. The crew did its job and I did my job.”
Tim Stevens became another first-time winner when he defeated three-time defending Alcohol Funny Car World Champion Rob Atchison in the finals of the Skull Shine World Nationals. Stevens, who suffered a severe crash at the 2004 World Finals in Rockingham, was racing in just his second race this season after completing his ’06 Dodge Stratus chassis.
“This really has not sunk in yet,” Stevens said. “This whole team did an outstanding job this weekend. We didn’t do very well last year, but this new car is very good. We haven’t even tested it. When we get more information on it we are going to be very dangerous.”
Stevens ran a 5.935 at 237.21 in the final to top Atchison on a hole-shot. His reaction time was 0.045, enabling him to reach the line first against Atchison’s 5.910/241.58 with a 0.115 reaction time.
The Knoll Gas-Torco Racing Fuels Pro Nitro Funny Car finalists, Scott Kalitta and Gary Densham, could not make the call for the final as both drivers left Norwalk Raceway Park to keep previous commitments.

Skull Shine World Nationals Delayed Until Monday
(8-27-2006) - IHRA officials postponed Sunday final eliminations of the Skull Shine World Nationals presented by ACDelco at Norwalk Raceway Park. Tim Stevens won the Alcohol Funny Car class, however, the remaining professional final rounds will be contested Monday at 10 a.m. Gates will open at 8 a.m. and sportsman eliminations begin at 9 a.m. Sunday tickets will be honored Monday.
GILBERTSON’S RECORD-SETTING WEEKEND CONTINUES;
After setting Norwalk Raceway Park Nitro Funny Car record Friday, sets new
Saturday at the Skull Shine World Nationals presented by ACDelco
(8-26-2006) - Bob Gilbertson was not content with just setting the Norwalk Raceway Park Knoll Gas-Torco Racing Fuels Pro Nitro Funny Car track record once, so he went back for seconds.
Twenty-four hours after eclipsing John Force’s previous mark of 4.879 with a 4.864 pass at 318.39 mph Friday night, the Charlotte, N.C. resident roared down the track in 4.800 at 314.68 mph Saturday to better his record-setting number and claim the No. 1 qualifying position at the Skull Shine World Nationals presented by ACDelco.
“I told the team we just need to run 4.82, but this thing is a fast hot rod, thanks to Autolite, Prestone and everybody,” said Gilbertson. “I feel good, but I’m a little bummed out. We had a plan but it just fell apart because we ran too quickly. I know it sounds kind of crazy, but since we missed a race, we figured we could use the extra points for a national record. But the way we calculated it, we went too quick to back it up.”
J.R. Todd ( Avon, Ind.) showed why he has been one of the most successful racers on the NHRA circuit. Todd climbed to the top of the qualifying sheet and threatened the Norwalk Raceway Park track record with a 4.586 shot at 321.12 mph to knock Doug Foley, who ran the pair before him, into the #2 position. Foley ( Sewell, N.J.) finished second on the sheet with a 4.624 run at 312.64.
“I wanted to give the fans something to talk about,” said Todd. “A 4.58 is what we were shooting for, so it’s a good run for us going into a big race next weekend, but right now it’s about winning here tomorrow.”
An unfamiliar face found its way to the top of the Torco’s CompetitionPlus.com Pro Modified qualifying sheet when the third and final qualifying round was completed at Norwalk Raceway Park. Canadian racer Tony Pontieri ( Toronto, Ont.) drove to his first pole position of the ’06 season by driving his ’57 Chevy Bel Air to a 6.122 pass at 234.41 mph. Pontieri is running a limited schedule this season, but ripped right down the groove in the second Saturday qualifying session to take the top qualifying spot away from Quain Stott.
Stott, a Columbus, N.C. resident, finished second on the ladder with a 6.145 pass at 230.25 mph while Carl Spiering (Jordan Station, Ont.) closed out the top three with a 6.152 pass at 231.12 mph.
Rob Atchison might have things finally figured out. The London, Ont. resident put together a blistering 5.766/245.32 pass during the final qualifying session Saturday to break Jim Sickles’ track record of 5.769 and grab the top qualifying spot heading into Sunday’s elimination rounds. A three-time defending IHRA World Champion, Atchison remains in search of his first national event victory this season.
Rob Mansfield has had an up-and-down 2006 season, but Saturday night at the Skull Shine World Nationals was definitely one of the ups.
Mansfield (Winter Park, Fla.) grabbed the top qualifying position when he drove his ’05 Cobalt to a 6.434 at 217.00 mph. Mansfield nosed out Robert Patrick (Fredericksburg, Va.) for top qualifier honors as Patrick carded a 6.442 in his ’06 Shelby Mustang.
In Nitro Cycles, Jay Turner ( Julian, N.C.) drove to the exhibition victory with a 6.491/205.32 pass. Mike Romine, a Sturgis, Mich. resident, was second in the class with a 6.554 run at 208.68 mph.
Professional eliminations for the Skull Shine World Nationals presented by ACDelco at Norwalk Raceway Park begin Sunday at 11 p.m. Final round starts at 4:15 p.m.

FRIDAY - A TRIP TO THE TOP FOR GILBERTSON; Hillary Will, Mark Thomas, Eddie Ware and Robert Patrick also claim provisional poles heading into Saturday qualifying
(8-25-2006) – The sportsman car count may have dominated the news from the Skull Shine World Nationals presented by ACDelco, but the professional qualifying session stole the show.
Bob Gilbertson (Charlotte, N.C.) set a track record and jumped to the top of the provisional qualifying sheet by blistering the track with a Norwalk Raceway Park record 4.864 pass at 318.39 mph in the Knoll Gas-Torco Racing Fuels Pro Nitro Funny Car qualifying session. Gilbertson, currently third in IHRA championship points standings, broke John Force's track record (4.879) by ripping straight down the groove and charging hard past the finish line.
Jack Wyatt (Corydon, Iowa) headed into the Skull Shine World Nationals just 16 points behind leader Dale Creasy Jr. He put himself in position to cut into that points lead by clocking a solid 4.917 pass at 271.24 to slip into the provisional #2 qualifying position. Gary Densham (Bellflower, Calif.) will head into Saturday qualifying in third position while Creasy (Beecher, Ill.) was fourth.
Hilary Will (Ypsilanti, Mich.) made a statement right out of the gate in her first career IHRA Knoll Gas-Torco Racing Fuels Pro Nitro Top Fuel event. Will and J.R. Todd, in the first pair of the qualifying session, ran side-by-side 4.64 passes to set the mark early. Those numbers held up after all Top Fuel cars went down the track. Will, with a 4.643, nosed Todd (4.645) at the finish line to put her on the provisional pole. Will was clocked at 322.11 as she crossed the finish line while Todd posted a speed of 308.64.
Sewell, N.J. resident Doug Foley, currently in second behind five-time defending IHRA World Champion Clay Millican, ended Friday in the #3 spot with a 4.65 pass at 309.0 mph. Millican, a Drummonds, Tenn. resident, was fourth after the Friday session with a 4.69 pass at 308.2.
In Torco's CompetitionPlus.com Pro Modified Eddie Ware (Marietta, Ga.) set the pace, posting a stout 6.185 pass at 229.59 mph. Ware, in his blown '67 Camaro, finished Friday's qualifying session slightly in front of Carl Spiering (Jordan Station, Ont.) and Jim Halsey (Street, Md.), who both crossed the finish line in 6.191 seconds. Spiering was awarded the provisional #2 spot based on his 229.70 mph speed compared to Halsey's 225.41.
Mark Thomas (Louisville, Ohio) jumped to the top of the provisional qualifying ladder Friday night by running a tight 5.964 pass at 242.06 mph. Thomas stepped in front of Fred Tigges (Holbrook, Mass.) and Terry Munroe (Beaver, Pa.) by a thousandth-of-a-second, two pairs of cars after Tigges and Munroe clocked identical 5.865 passes. Tigges will spend Friday night in the #2 qualifying session as his 238.22 speed was faster than Munroe's 231.40.
Fredericksburg, Va.-resident Robert Patrick is in position to claim his second consecutive pole position after taking command of the Torco's CompetitionPlus.com Pro Stock qualifying session. Patrick, who was the top qualifier in Martin three weeks ago, ran a 6.467/213.03 pass to sleep on top of the ladder Friday night. Frank Gugliotta (Mt. Airy, Md.) ran the second-quickest pass of the Friday qualifying session with a 6.480/214.76 run. Current points leader Tony Gillig (Lake Bluff, Ill.) finished down the sheet in 12th position and will have to take advantage of the two Saturday qualifying sessions to move up the ladder.
Mike Romine set the pace in Nitro Cycle, lighting up the scoreboard with a 6.55 pass at 208.68 mph to pace the exhibition class. Mark Cox was second on the qualifying ladder with a 6.848 pass at 186.25 mph.
