Mike Salinas’ new association with Brian Husen and Alan Johnson is already showing dividends as the Scrappers Racing pilot raced to the No. 1 spot halfway through qualifying.

Salinas, whose first and only other No. 1 berth came at last year’s Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, improved on his first-session 3.77 with a 3.705 to take over the qualifying lead. Defending event champ Steve Torrence sits in the no. 2 spot with a 3.721 while first-session leader Brittany Force fell to third after failing to make a full pass.

Leah Pritchett, who sits second in Top Fuel points behind Doug Kalitta, also continued to look good, backing up her first-session 3.775 with a 3.743.
