Vincent Nobile had to miss the final five races of the season because he had his owner pull the plug on his deal. Now, Nobile is back in the NHRA and is the No. 1 Pro Stock qualifier in the Mountain View Tire Chevy Camaro.
Nobile picked up the top spot on Saturday at the 58th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in Pomona, California.
This is his eighth No. 1 qualifier in his career. However, it’s his first No. 1 qualifier since the inaugural Dodge NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in 2016. He also won that race.
“I feel on top of the world, especially after taking off a couple of races at the end of last season,” he said. “I’ve got a great car and a great group of people behind me, this team put in a ton of work over the winter and we definitely made a few improvements to our engine and we have to keep moving forward.”
Nobile, a New York native, will face a North Jersey native in the first-round of eliminations on Sunday. He’ll face Alan Prusiensky, the No. 16 qualifier, who went 6.733 at 207.02 mph in his ARCraceengines.com Dodge Dart.
Drew Skillman, the driver of the Ray Skillman Chevrolet Camaro, was the No. 2 qualifier with his 6.547 at 210.60 mph pass. He’ll face Joey Grose in the first-round of eliminations after Grose went 6.699 at 207.46 mph.
Greg Anderson, the red Summit Racing Equipment-sponsored driver, was the No. 3 qualifier with a 6.554 at 211.30 mph pass. He’ll face Val Smeland after he went 6.691 at 207.91 mph.
Jason Line, the blue Summit Racing Equipment-sponsored driver, qualified No. 4 following his 6.557 at 209.33 mph pass. He’ll face Kenny Delco in the first-round of eliminations after he went 6.624 at 207.40 mph in his KD Racing Camaro.
Alex Laughlin, the Gas Monkey Energy sponsored driver, is the No. 5 qualifier with his 6.558 at 209.62 mph pass. He’ll face Steve Graham in the first-round of eliminations after Graham went 6.61 at 208.30 mph.
