POMONA, Calif. (AP) — John Force had a Funny Car-record time of 3.966 seconds at 324.12 mph to top qualifying Friday in the season-opening NHRA Winternationals.

The 64-year-old Force, the defending Funny Car season champion, opened with a 3.983-second run in his first qualifying attempt, then powered to the record 3.966 in the evening session. If the time holds through the end of the weekend, Force will earn a 20-point bonus for setting the record.

Antron Brown led the Top Fuel field, and Allen Johnson topped the Pro Stock racers.

Brown had a 3.731 at 326.00. Defending series champion Shawn Langdon was second at 3.746 at 328.70.

Johnson finished in 6.517 at 212.53.
