POMONA, Calif. — Robert Hight topped Funny Car qualifying Saturday in the season-opening Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona.
Hight had a 3.871-second run at 329.67 mph on Friday night in a Chevrolet Camaro that stood through Saturday’s sessions.
« We are here to show these guys we know what we’re doing, » Hight said. « The guys worked hard over the winter and found some things we did wrong during the Countdown. Testing went well and we’ve won here quite a few times and been No. 1 qualifier here before, so we normally are able to shine when it counts. »
Steve Torrence took the top spot in Top Fuel, and Rodger Brogdon was the fastest in Pro Stock. Torrence had a 3.657-second run at 331.61 mph in his final pass, and Brogdon ran a 6.522 at 212.03 mph in a Chevrolet in the opening session of the day.
