“It’s no secret that our 2020 hasn’t been great so this is a really big boost for our American Ethanol team,” Kramer said. “I feel like we turned a corner at the U.S. Nationals a few weeks ago and it’s all coming together this weekend, but we need to keep our eyes on the prize. We’ve got one mission for raceday and that’s to come home with the win.”

Reigning U.S. Nationals winner Erica Enders is the No. 2 qualifier. The Houston, Texans native went 6.608 at 208.65 mph.

Total Pistons sponsored Matt Hartford is the No. 3 qualifier. The Scottsdale, Arizona native – who lost to Enders at the 2020 U.S. Nationals – went 6.608 at 207.08 mph.

The top 3 in the points standing is very close. Then, the rest are a wide margin behind.

Enders is the points leader and only leads Coughlin Jr. by seven points. Line is 11 points behind Enders.
