MORRISON, Colo. (AP) — Tony Schumacher raced to his first No. 1 qualifying position of the year and his career first at Bandimere Speedway for the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals.
Schumacher's Top Fuel dragster earned the No. 1 qualifying position on Friday with a pass of 3.823 seconds at 319.75 mph.
No one was able to best the effort and Schumacher retained the No. 1 qualifying position, the 73rd in his career. He will face Jenna Haddock who makes her career first Top Fuel start on Sunday.
"We went down the track four times, we made it to the finish line four times," said Schumacher, the seven-time Top Fuel world champ.
