EPPING, N.H. (AP) — Robert Hight broke New England Dragway's Funny Car time record with a 3.988-second pass Friday night in qualifying for the Auto-Plus NHRA New England Nationals.

Hight, a four-time winner this season and the series points leads, powered his Ford Mustang to a top speed of 321.58 mph on the final pass of the night.

Antron Brown led in Top Fuel, Shane Gray in Pro Stock, and Hector Arana Jr. in Pro Stock Motorcycle.

Brown raced to the provisional No. 1 qualifying spot with a 3.770 at 323.58, setting a track record for elapsed time during the second session. Brown, the 2012 season champion, has three victories this year.
