NHRA Arizona Nationals underway at Phoenix

While there were a series of great performances during qualifying, including many career bests, and several resets of the Top Fuel national speed record, the first round of eliminations provided more than its fair share of upsets. Greg Carrillo over Tony Schumacher. Richard "Nitroholic" Townsend over Jack "(not so) Fast" Beckman, and everybody's favourite underdog, Scott Palmer, over Richie Crampton. Also advancing to the quarter final round were Billy Torrence, in his first appearance in nearly two years, and Blake Alexander, in his first race behind the wheel of Bob Vandergriff's car. It's beginning to look like this season might not be as predictable as some people had expected.

The trend continued in the second round, with Greg Carrillo knocking off another of the DSR heavy hitters, Antron Brown, and Soctt Palmer followed with an easy victory over Leah Pritchett (in yet another DSR car). The semifinals will feature an all-Torrence match between father and son, and a guaranteed first-time finalist: either local racer Greg Carrillo or the (relatively) low-budget entry of Missouri's Soctt Palmer. This is definitely getting interesting.
