CHANDLER, Ariz. – Brittany Force is the current No. 1 Top Fuel qualifier after qualifying at the Magic Dry Organic Absorbent NHRA Arizona Nationals at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park was stopped early due to weather Friday afternoon.
Funny Car’s Matt Hagan was also a provisional No. 1 qualifier at the second event of the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series schedule.
B. Force powered her Advance Auto Parts dragster to a 4.976-second pass at 185.28 mph during the lone qualifying session of the day.
“We battled the rain all day but we at least got one pass in,” B. Force stated. “It wasn’t what we wanted, it blew the tires off it at maybe about 100 feet out. I pedaled it and it hooked up and went down there so it was good practice. Tomorrow the sun is supposed to be out and hopefully we’ll get in two more.”
Jim Maroney is second in his American Flowtech dragster while Scott Palmer is third in his Magic Dry Organic Absorbent dragster.
Hagan leads Funny Car qualifying with his run of 3.942 seconds at 321.50 mph in his Sandvik Coromant Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Hagan’s lap was the fastest pass of the day. He is seeking his first No. 1 qualifier of the season and second of his career at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park.
John Force and the PEAK Chevrolet Camaro SS are second and Tommy Johnson Jr. is third in his Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.
