By the time she ran in the final pair under the lights on Friday at Houston Raceway Park, Brittany Force had been bumped from the No. 1 spot to No. 7 but she quickly regained the pole with a stunning 3.661, 332.18 to claim both ends of the track record in Houston. Force and her Advance Auto Parts team led both sessions to earn six qualifying points on the opening day of the event.

Conditions were right for Top Fuel teams to "get after it" on Friday night and almost all of them were successful with the top eight drivers qualified at 3.754 or quicker. Reigning champ Steve Torrence was second-quickest with a 3.703 while Leah Pritchett made a bit improvement with a 3.720, the third quickest run of the day. Rookie Jordan Vandergriff was also impressive with a 3.746 that is currently good for the No. 8 spot.
