MORRISON, Colo. (AP) — Brittany Force took the No. 1 spot in the final Top Fuel qualifying session Saturday in the NHRA Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway.
Force had a 3.758-second run at 325.61 mph at Thunder Mountain for her fourth No. 1 qualifier of the season and 36th overall.
“We turned it around with two solid passes today, so we’re feeling good and in a great position for tomorrow,” Force said. “It’s game on tomorrow and we’re trying to get back on top as the points leader. I’ve struggled here in the past, so we’re looking to turn it around here.”
Matt Hagan topped the Funny Car field, Aaron Stanfield was fastest in Pro Stock and Matt Smith led in Pro Stock Motorcycle.
Defending event winner Hagan wrapped up his fourth top spot of the year with a 3.908 at 323.12 in a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.
Stanfield secured his fourth No. 1 qualifier of the season with a 6.934 at 196.82 in a Chevrolet.
