Six Funny Cars ripped their way into the three-second zone during the late-afternoon session led by Robert Hight, who clocked a 3.928 in the Auto Club Camaro. Bob Tasca III (3.953), Ron Capps (3.965), Shawn Langdon (3.979), Tommy Johnson Jr. (3.985), and John Force (3.995) also covered the new concrete-strip in less than four seconds.
Tim Wilkerson made a solid run of 4.01 but crossed the centerline after the finish line for a costly five-point penalty. Defending event champ Jack Beckman surprisingly find himself in the field’s 16th and final spot after two troubled runs and a 5.075 best.
