North Dinwiddie, Va. — U.S. Army Racing Top Fuel Dragster pilot Tony Schumacher is the provisional No. 1 qualifier on Friday night at the Virginia NHRA Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park. Schumacher went 3.777 at 327.51 mph to get the top spot.

Schumacher will attempt to claim the event’s No. 1 qualifier on Saturday. His number will have to hold up for him to be able to do that.

“All of the drivers and crew chiefs were really pleased with this track, it was just perfect,” Schumacher said. “We have won this race before, but to have the fans coming back to this track and see the U.S. Army car doing well is a really cool feeling.”

Reigning Top Fuel Dragster Champion Brittany Force is presently in the No. 2 position. The California native, who is the pilot of the Monster Energy Top Fuel Dragster, went 3.808 at 324.75 mph.

Amalie Oil Top Fuel Dragster pilot Terry McMillen is presently in the No. 3 position. The Elkhart, Indiana native went 3.816 at 323.81 mph.

Scrappers Racing Top Fuel pilot Mike Salinas is presently in the No. 5 position. The San Jose, California native went 3.861 at 319.07 mph.
