Three Funny Cars broke into the 3.8-second zone as qualifying resumed under cool and cloudy skies. Tommy Johnson Jr. leads qualifying with one session left after charting a 3.896 in the Make A Wish Hellcat Charger.
Johnson, who made his NHRA national debut at this event in 1984 in Super Gas, and crew bounced back in a big way after a rough weekend in Phoenix three weeks ago that cost them two bodies. T.J.’s run edged the 3.897 of eight-time Gatornationals champ John Force and Friday leader Robert Hight, who improved from a 3.928 to a 3.899 but still dropped two spots.
