Drew Skilman’s hot streak is continuing. He and his crew have figured out his Ray Skillman Chevrolet Camaro in the past several weeks, which includes back-to-back wins and a No. 1 qualifier last weekend at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals.

Skillman is the provisional No. 1 qualifier after Friday’s qualifying sessions at the 30th annual Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. He went 6.544 at 211.73 mph in his second qualifying session.

If he secures the No. 1 qualifier, it’ll be his second straight. Also, he’s going for his third straight win.

“We are on a momentum of positive energy,” Skillman said. “We’ve got a great car and we’ve got great horsepower. Can’t complain right now; life is good. We’re going to keep swinging and hope to improve [Saturday].”

KB Racing-owned and Summit Racing Equipment-sponsored Greg Anderson is the provisional No. 2 qualifier at 6.553 at 211.39 mph. Anderson’s KB Racing teammate and Jim Butner’s Auto Chevrolet Camaro-sponsored Bo Butner is presently third with a 6.564 at 211.66 mph pass.

Jason Line, who is also a part of KB Racing and Summit Racing Equipment-sponsored, is presently No. 4 with a 6.565 at 211.86 mph run. Rookie phenom Tanner Gray, who has cooled off as of late in his Gray Motorsports/Valvoline/Nova Services Chevrolet Camaro, is presently fifth with a 6.573 at 210.08 mph.
