Jack Beckman’s Infinite Hero Dodge was the only Funny Car to make a full run in the final qualifying session, blasting to a 3.900 that raced him all the way to the No. 2 spot behind Robert Hight, whose Friday 3.871 stayed atop the pack. 

The top nine qualifiers are all in the threes down to world champ J.R. Todd’s 3.940. Terry Haddock sat out all three previous qualifying sessions, then snuck into the field on his only pass in Q4, coasting to a 6.926 to bump out Jeff Diehl, who smoked the tires in the lane next to him.

First-round pairings (lane choice first): Robert Hight vs. Terry Haddock; Jack Beckman vs. Phil Burkart Jr.; Tommy Johnson Jr. vs. Tim Wilkerson; Matt Hagan vs. John Force; Ron Capps vs. Gary Densham; Shawn Langdon vs. Jim Campbell; Cruz Pedregon vs. Frank Pedregon; Bob Tasca III vs. J.R. Todd
