INTENSE TOP FUEL TEST A
PORTENT OF POTENT MARCH MEEThttp://aafuelers.wordpress.com/2014/10/20/bartone-bookends-bakersfield-blitzkrieg/http://aafuelers.wordpress.com/2014/10/20/bartone-bookends-bakersfield-blitzkrieg/https://aafuelers.wordpress.com/2015/03/03/pre-march-meet-top-fuel-test-proves-intense/shapeimage_9_link_0shapeimage_9_link_1

March 8, 2015, Auto Club Famoso Raceway—In a fiery, spectacular clash of two distinct, different approaches to front-engined Top Fuel drag racing, New Yorker Tony Bartone chased down Los Angeleno Adam Sorokin in the final round of Good Vibrations March Meet in Bakersfield, while claiming Low ET and Top Speed.

Bartone shoes the Chrysler-powered, Steve Boggs-prepped “Bartone Bros.” rail, while Sorokin stabs and steers a small-block Chevy-powered full-bodied, canopied dragster. What these two nitro warriors have in common is a willingness to blow up their mills in pursuit of a second March Meet Title — and that’s how it shook out in what is the NHRA Heritage Series Top Fuel season-opener: In the final round Sorokin launched off the line like a bullet. Bartone, who had more than a 1/10th of a second performance advantage over the rest of the AA/Fuelers throughout the event, gave pursuit. At 330’ Bartone figured to make his move but, instead, found himself a car length behind the hard-charging Chevy. And Sorokin’s “mouse” motor kept pulling: At half-track, Sorokin had six-hundredths of a second on the New Yorker.  MORE HERE:
