Ann Marie Whiteley of Grand Junction, Colo. won today’s NHRA Lucas Oil Series Top Alcohol Funny Car final over Tony Bartone of Long Island City, N.Y. Although Bartone posted a better reaction time (.066 to Whiteley’s .122), the female Funny Car driver stopped the clocks at 5.678 sec. to collect the winner’s check.

The final round of Top Alcohol Dragster eliminations will be re-run during this weekend’s NHRA Nationals at The Strip at LVMS. Chris Demke of Sunland, Calif. was paired against Jim Whiteley, Ann Marie’s husband. A gust of wind blew an object through the timing beams and stopped the clock in Whiteley’s lane. With a storm front coming in from the west that pushed gusts to more than 40 mph, both drivers agreed to re-run the final during the third round of Top Alcohol Dragster qualifying on Saturday afternoon. UPDATE (MARCH 31 -- 2:30 p.m.) -- Whiteley won the race (5.52 sec./263.82 mph to Demke’s 5.80 sec./261.02 mph.
