Chris Holbrook didn't run the second of three qualifying sessions of the SAMTech.edu Factory Stock Showdown competition at the Menards NHRA Heartland Nationals in Topeka. That didn't rob him of his perch atop the qualifying sheet, though. Kevin Skinner came closest with an 8.081-second hit at 170.84 mph, but that's still nearly six-hundredths of a second away from toppling Holbrook's incredible 8.024.
