Before the rains came, Dave Harris came to the line with the car looking different from past years.
During the rain delay, I was walking the pits when I saw John Schober sitting in his dragster getting it ready to run. A short time later the car exited the tunnel and approached the line. John was not in the driver's seat! I looked around to see who was missing and it was Liz Manaseri, John's granddaughter. Liz is apparently converting from a junior dragster to a full size one. She drove well, getting better as the night rolled on.
