Leah Pritchett, who sits No. 2 in points behind Doug Kalitta, had the best run of the third qualifying session, charting a 3.745.
Mike Salinas, who didn’t make it down the track in the Scrappers machine, held onto the No. 1 spot with his Friday pass of 3.70. Antron Brown made the second quickest pass of the session, a 3.777, in the Matco Tools car.
Incoming No. 3 qualifier Brittany Force didn’t get to make a run in her Advance Auto Parts dragster after she was unable to get the car into reverse, which forced NHRA officials to shut off the other three in her quad: Terry McMillen, Richie Crampton, and Scott Palmer. Once the trio refired, only Palmer was able to make a full pass, a 3.79, his best of the event and third best of the session.
