Feb. 1, 2004 The Strip at Las Vegas at Motor SpeedWay----- With a bunch of the Pro teams taking today off, my two Vegas correspondents decided to head back to Phoenix to watch the Super Bowl from the confines of home. They are getting ready for what will probably be a very busy weekend at Phoenix's Firebird raceway. Make sure you check out Drag Race Central for all of today's action.

Pit notes: FC, Del Worsham made three attempts. The last two were hot laps with a 4.92 best. John Force and Gary Densham both ran great with Force going 328+ again and then getting loose on his second attempt right at 60 feet. Dnesham was strong on both hits. Eric Medlen had a short fuse in the noon session but was 256 to half track. Tony Pedregon looked okay with one strong half track hit. Jerry Toliver has alot of driver and car woes to work on. Team Scoal was only interested in 660 runs as well and Ron had a 261 half track mph. Tommy looked okay. Whit Bazemore was good on one run where he went 4.86 318. Gary Scelzi had decent one by the looks of it, but clicked it by 600 feet. TF was again very weak, as Greg Huff made two licencing passes in the Strasburg TF car. was 3.27 to half track in one. Shep Ginzberg tried one lap and smoked em early. Baca clicked it before the 330 on both his attempts. Great 60 foots but over powered the track. Pro Stock saw Ben Watson make two 6 second passes. And finally Mike Berry made two PS Bike laps. Pictures to come in an hour or so.
