Scott Palmer

How about Scott Palmer? The Missouri native made a 3.72-second pass to leap all the way to the No. 3 spot in the qualifying order, right behind Steve Torrence and Doug Kalitta. He trails the two racers by .004-second after stepping up by nearly a tenth. That put him ahead of Mike Salinas, who’s racing with Alan Johnson and new crew chief Brian Husen, and Billy Torrence. 

Austin Prock also made a terrific debut by running a 3.771 in his Top Fuel debut. He’s holding down the top half of the field, just behind Clay Millican, who made a terrific pass in the second session alongside new crew chief Mike Kloeber. Well, new this season, anyway. Leah Pritchett still has work to do after two unsuccessful runs and is at the bottom of the 14-car field.
