B. Force, Hagan lead rain-shortened Phoenix qualifying

By

Brittany Force was the No. 1 qualifier for Top Fuel after only one qualifying session due to inclement weather at the Magic Dry Organic Absorbent NHRA Arizona Nationals at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park. Matt Hagan (Funny Car) was also provisional No. 1 qualifier on Friday.

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,” Force said. “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 was second after his American Flowtech dragster while Scott Palmer was third in his Magic Dry Organic Absorbent dragster.

Hagan led qualifying with his run of 3.942 at 321.50 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 was second and Tommy Johnson Jr. third in his Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.
