Louisiana firefighter and White Alligator Racing Pro Stock Motorcycle rider LE Tonglet is the provisional No. 1 qualifier at the 30th annual Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. He picked up the top spot with a 6.783 at 196.73 mph pass on his Nitro Fish Racing Suzuki.

He got the No. 1 qualifier on his second pass of the day. He’s looking for his third No. 1 qualifier of the season. If he is able to get that on Saturday, it’ll be his sixth in his career.

“Being No. 1 builds up your confidence,” Tonglet, a former world champion, said. “We’ve won here two times and hopefully we can add to that. Also, hopefully we can get a couple of round wins at the Mickey Thompson Tire’s Pro Bike Battle.”
