As predicted, elapsed times in Top Fuel plummeted after cool weather moved into Heartland Motorsports Park overnight. Brittany Force picked up nearly two tenths from her qualifying best with a 3.690 in her win against Clay Millican, who was well behind in spite of a very competitive 3.755. The next quickest driver was Doug Kalitta, who powered to a 3.737 in his win against Leah Pritchett.

Both of the Capco Contractors dragsters advanced with low qualifier Steve Torrence stretching his win streak to 16-rounds. With 14 cars on the ladder, he will get a free pass into the semifinals.

ROUND TWO PAIRINGS (Lane choice first): Steve Torrence vs. bye; Billy Torrence vs. Richie Crampton; Brittany Force vs. Austin Prock; Doug Kalitta vs. Antron Brown.
