Angelle Seeling is so tiny that if you aren't watching closely, you'd swear that her Suzuki motorcycle is riderless as it streaks down the drag strip at speeds of better than 180 mph. Weighing barely 98 pounds, the 5-foot 1-inch professional drag racer from Americus, Ga., will have 65 pounds of lead ballast riding with her to bring the 270-horsepower bike up to the minimum weight for today's Winston Select Finals at the Pomona Raceway. "In some ways, it helps to be small.

If the National Hot Rod Assn. was using the Auto Club Finals as a showcase for live television, they picked a bad time. The final event of the Winston Drag Racing series would be better named the Oil Down Finals. The first four runs of top-fuel dragsters--about 24 seconds of racing--took 1 hour 7 minutes to complete.
