New-car blues was the theme of the weekend for Chip Provenza as he showed off his brand-new Drag Radial racer. The black car sports a 25.1-certified cage and the same 1,300hp Vortech-blown engine from last year. He ran 8.25 in testing the night before qualifying, but he couldn't keep the BFGoodrich tires glued in qualifying or eliminations. Once the team sorts out this ride, they are expecting to run 8.10 at more than 173 mph.
