Brittany Force was the low qualifier in Gainesville, and started eliminations from the No. 3 spot last week in Gainesville. Now, the 2017 world champ is off to another solid start in Houston with a 3.738 from her David Grubnic-tuned Advance Auto Parts dragster. Force was one of eight drivers in the 3.7s including reigning champ Steve Torrence who posted a 3.745 and Terry McMillen, who wheeled his Amalie dragster to a 3.756 to score a qualifying bonus point.

Jordan Vandergriff, who sat out the Las Vegas event, was sixth quickest with a 3.769, earning a few bragging rights against his rookie of the year rival, Austin Prock, who finished the session in the No. 8 spot after a 3.796 in the Montana Brands dragster.
