Brittany Force and David Grubnic made a statement run in the third qualifying session, a 3.696, to take over the top spot in Top Fuel at the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com. She did it side-by-side the 2018 Top Fuel world champ Steve Torrence, who improved to a 3.711. Richie Crampton also improved, making a 3.712 and moving into the No. 3 position. 

The top of the table is tightly packed, leaving little room for error for crew chiefs who want a spot in the top half of the qualifying sheet. Scott Palmer hopes to earn one of those spots for just the third time in the last calendar year with a 3.72. That puts him .002-second ahead of Mike Salinas, who looks impressive alongside tuner Alan Johnson and crew chief Brian Husen.
