Shawn Langdon picked up his second No. 1 qualifier in the young season. The pilot of the Guy Fieri Knuckle sandwich Top Fuel dragster also had the top spot at the first race of the year in Pomona.

Langdon picked up the Amalie Oil NHRA Gatornationals top qualifier with a 3.765 second pass. He’s slated to face Morgan Lucas in the first round.

“We wanted to come out and make a strong run in that early session,” Langdon said. “We knew it was going to heat up for the later session today. We really felt that was the run to go after. Luckily, it held and it was basically what we were trying to run.”

Langdon is looking for his first career Gatornationals win. The last time he was the No. 1 qualifier in Pomona, he went on to win the race.

Spencer Massey, who was the third qualifier after the first two sessions, moved up to the second position. He went 3.793, and will face Chris Karamesines.

Doug Kalitta, who saw first-hand Larry Dixon‘s scary crash, is third following a 3.796 pass. He’ll face teammate J.R. Todd in the first round.

Tony Schumacher, who was the provisional No. 1 qualifier last night, moved down to fourth with a 3.796 run. Kalitta got the third spot over Schumacher, as they both had the same time; however, Kalitta went 323.58 mph compared to Schumacher’s 323.43.

Schumacher will face Terry McMillen, who is the driver of the Amalie Oil dragster, in the first round.

Leah Pritchett rounds out the top five. The driver of the Gumout Top Fuel dragster went 3.809 and will face Clay Millican in the first round.

This is Pritchett’s top qualifying position of her career.
