Tommy Johnson Jr. and his DSR teammate Matt Hagan were the stars of the third Funny Car qualifying session but neither could get around Friday leader Robert Hight.
Johnson’s John Collins-tuned Make-A-Wish Dodge Hellcat blasted to a 3.904 in the final pair of the session to eke out Hagan’s 3.909 for the No. 2 spot. Hight, who set the pace Friday with a 3.871, had a good run going with the Auto Club Chevy but had to lift early and finished with a 4.111. Bob Tasca III made his second three-second pass of the weekend with a 3.939 in his new Mustang to solidify his place in the field.
