ENGLISHTOWN, NJ — Bo Butner is the provisional No. 1 qualifier in Pro Stock on Friday night at the 48th annual NHRA Summernationals at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park. Butner, who drives the Jim Butner’s Auto Chevy Camaro, went 6.551 at 211.59 mph during his second pass.
Should he hold on to the top spot, it’ll be the third of his career. However, it will be the first-time that he was the No. 1 qualifier since Topeka, two races ago.
“Today is a great day for us since we ran low times twice, and we are happy with the outcome and ready to get out there again tomorrow,” he said. “We hope our position holds up but I know we can improve upon our times tomorrow.”
Rookie sensation Tanner Gray is the second qualifier with a 6.555 run at 211.59 mph. He is looking to stop Butner — and qualifier No. 1 for the second straight race.
Jason Line — who only has one win this season — is qualified third. He took his Summit Racing Equipment Chevy Camaro down the track at 6.559 at 210.73 mph.
Allen Johnson is qualified fourth in his Marathon Petroleum and J&J Racing Dodge Dart. He went 6.567 at 210.90 mph.
Greg Anderson is the fifth qualifier as KB Racing as three of the Top 5 cars. Anderson, who also drives a Summit Racing Equipment Chevy Camaro, went 6.578 at 211.79 mph.
