Full runs were at a premium during the third Top Fuel qualifying session in Topeka. Richie Crampton and Steve Torrence were quickest. Crampton, who has made full passes on all three attempts so far, picked up three bonus points with a 3.842 at 312.28 mph in his DHL dragster. Torrence lifted early, yet still managed a 3.912 in his Capco Contractors entry. The third-best run of the round went to Terry McMillen with a 4.126.
With one run remaining, Steve Torrence, Billy Torrence, and Austin Prock hold down the top three spots in the Top Fuel field.
