O'Reilly NHRA Spring Nationals
Houston Raceway Park, Baytown
Top Fuel: Odessa native Alan Bradshaw's time of 4.526 seconds at 323.50 mph set on Friday held up to give Bradshaw the No. 1 spot for Sunday's elimination rounds.
Funny Car: Cruz Pedregon's 4.834-second pass at 314.97 on Friday night was good enough for the No. 1 spot. In fact, Pedregon was the only one who came close to beating his own time with a 4.86-second pass in Saturday's first session. His reward for dominating qualifying in the ultra-competitive Funny Car class will be a first-round matchup Sunday with four-time world champion Gary Scelzi. “Bring it on. I feel like if we're going to be successful, we're going to have to beat guys like that,” said Pedregon, who will enter Sunday's final eliminations in second place after points-leader Robert Hight failed to qualify.
Pro Stock: Kurt Johnson's 6.638-second pass at 208.42 mph from Friday was good enough to earn him the No. 1.
Pro Stock Motorcycle: Matt Smith led the two-wheelers with a 6.929-second pass at 191.38 mph that was set on Friday and held up Saturday.
