Mark Oswald is Driving again

Obviously Mark Oswald hasn't raced at NHRA events since
losing in the first round to Ron Capps at the last
Pomona race in 1997. You probably thought Mark hadn't
been in fours before, since it was sooooooooooo long'd be wrong. Mark's prior best et was a 4.981,
qualifying 5th at Etown in 1997. His prior best mph was
a 308.64 at Indy in 1997, in a qualifying run. He's
going 20 mph faster now, qualifying #2 at Chicago with
a 4.757/328.46.

In eliminations at Chicago, Mark met up with another racer
he hadn't seen in 11 years, Tony P. Which led me to
research how many other drivers he has raced in the past
that are still racing today. From 1987 to 2008, Mark has
raced 71 different drivers. Only 9 are still racing today.
Listed below are who they are and Mark's record against
each (since 1987).

Capps 0-2
Densham 5-2
Force 18-21
Head 6-1
Kalitta 3-2
Pedregon, C 3-11
Pedregon, T 2-2
Wilkerson 4-2
Worsham 2-4

EXCEPT for 2006, which in that year they did
not race against each other.
