Holley's Doug Flynn Reaches Midnight Drags Final
"This time, it knocked the tires off on the first two runs qualifying runs," said Flynn, whose classic muscle car is powered by a complete Holley EFI system. "I killed the tune for the last qualifying run just to get it to go down the track [without losing traction], and it did." That's putting it mildly. Flynn did much more than make it down the track – he qualified all the way up in the No. 2 spot despite shutting off a little early.
"I took timing out and changed the second stage of nitrous," he said. "It wasn't even a full run. It lost bottle pressure and laid over before the finish line. I could feel it." He still managed to record an 8.67 despite coasting across the stripe at just 143 mph. "The last rounds were run without almost any cool down between runs and everything was getting really warm, but all in all, it turned out pretty good."
Powered by a nitrous-fed 582 cubic-inch beast of an engine, Flynn's car has run as quick as 8.44 under better conditions. At Beech Bend, he blew away his first-round opponent with an easy 8.76 at 132 mph, then ran as quick as an 8.50 at 160 in the middle rounds before dropping the final with a consistent 8.56 at 161.
