ENNIS, TX – Brittany Force and the Monster Energy Top Fuel dragster team led the qualifying efforts for John Force Racing on a record setting day at the 30th annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals. Force finished the day as the No. 2 provisional qualifier on the strength of her 3.749 second run at 326.71 mph. The run was the second quickest of the session and re-established a four point lead over the driver in the No. 4 position in points.

“You want every point you can possibly get. The fact that we made up for dropping two points in Q1 with a good run in Q2 it big. Every point counts this far along in the game. With three races left everything could add up at the end of the season and those points could be valuable,” said Force, who just missed qualifying for the 2014 FallNationals.

“We made two good qualifying passes and we are very happy about that. We ended up No. 2 and that just proves how hard these guys are working. We struggled here last year and that just shows we can put some bad memories behind us we just jumped right back to work.”

On the Funny Car side of the pit area Robert Hight and the AAA Texas Chevrolet Camaro SS finished Friday as the No. 4 provisional qualifier. Hight’s second run of the day was a blistering 3.941 second run at 325.14 mph and has him two spots in front of team leader John Force.

“This track is just awesome. The conditions are really good but Billy Meyer has given us a great race track. The performances fans will see at the AAA Texas FallNationals will be record setting,” said Hight. “I am very happy with that last run. We have a great baseline for getting ready for race day. This AAA Texas Chevrolet Camaro SS Funny Car went right down the track and we are in the top four which is where we wanted to be going into Saturday.”

John Force and the Traxxas logoed Chevy Camaro posted the 6th quickest run of the day, a 3.960 second pass.

After two qualifying sessions at the AAA Texas FallNationals, Courtney Force hangs on to the No. 10 position with a 4.043 ET at 311.77 mph that she posted in the opening round today. The Traxxas team did not improve on their second attempt, but landed a top twelve spot going into Saturday and will get to keep their time.

“We ran a 4.04 in Q1. It put up fourth-quickest of the session. We were really close to picking up a couple of those bonus points, but I’m really proud of my team. They put together a great race car and a fast one for that session in the heat of the day,” said Force.

“Coming out in Q2, we had really great conditions and we pushed the car hard. We were aiming for a 3.95. We had the run set up like our St. Louis run. We were even hoping that with these conditions it would run a 3.94, but it shook pretty hard about 200 feet out and it ended our run early.”
