Brittany Force powered to her 11th career No. 1 start, running a strong 3.6870 to deny Mike Salinas what would have been just his second career pole position.

Reigning world champ Steve Torrence looked for all the world to be on the way to yet another No. 1 spot when his Capco Contractors rail ripped off a 3.709, but Salinas one-upped him with a 3.694. One pair later, Force’s David Grunic-tuned Advance Auto Parts dragster was back in the No. 1 spot it held before the session began.

First-round matchups (lane choice first): Brittany Force vs. Chris Karamesines; Mike Salinas vs. Jordan Vandergriff; Steve Torrence vs. Dom Lagana; Leah Pritchett vs. Pat Dakin; Antron Brown vs. Richie Crampton; Terry McMillen vs. Doug Kalitta; Clay Millican vs. Austin Prock; Scott Palmer vs. T.J. Zizzo.
