Mike Salinas

Low qualifier Mike Salinas scored his first career win in just his 42nd start, taking advantage of a new tuning tandem of Alan Johnson and Brian Husen to put his Scrappers Racing dragster into the winner’s circle.

Salinas powered to a 3.801 to fend off Brittany Force’s close 3.810 with Doug Kalitta and Clay Millican finishing third and fourth. Salinas' win ended a streak of three straight four-wide wins by world champ Steve Torrence and made his the first first-time winner in the class since Billy Torrence last year in Brainerd.
