Four more three-second passes went into the books in the second qualifying session, led by two-time world champ Robert Hight’s 3.915 that took over the No. 1 spot from Ron Capps, who was among many that didn’t make it down the track on a second try.
Tommy Johnson Jr. and Bob Tasca III also got into the three-second zone, and Matt Hagan backed up his earlier 3.971 with a 3.981 to earn the early favorite’s role based on consistency. Hagan’s 3.971 makes him the No. 8 qualifier, setting the top half of the field in the threes.
Here is the qualifying order after two sessions:
|4||Tommy Johnson Jr||3.929|
|7||Bob Tasca III||3.944|
|14||Phil Burkart Jr.||8.584|
