Capco Contractors Top Fuel Dragster pilot Steve Torrence is the provisional No. 1 qualifier at the 31st annual Catspot NHRA Northwest Nationals at Pacific Raceways in Kent, Washington. Torrence picked up the top spot on the second qualifying pass.
Torrence went 3.723 at 331.61 mph on Friday night. The Top Fuel points leader is looking to pick up his first No. 1 qualifier at Pacific Raceways.
“We’ve done well here in the past,” he said. “Coming out of the box and making a good run and then being able to back it up on that second one that does built up your confidence. I’m confident going into [Saturday.]”
Mac Tools Top Fuel dragster pilot Doug Kalitta is the provisional No. 2 qualifier after going 3.730 at 326.00 mph. Great Clips/Parts Plus Top Fuel dragster pilot Clay Millican is the provisional No. 3 qualifier at 3.743 at 330.47 mph.
“The Sarge” Tony Schumacher is the provisional No. 4 qualifier, as the U.S. Army Racing dragster went 3.751 at 327.03 mph. Last year’s NHRA Northwest Nationals winner and Schumacher’s Don Schumacher Racing’s teammate Antron Brown is the provisional No. 5 qualifier, as he went 3.761 at 330.80 mph in his Matco Tools Dragster.
Torrence has five wins this season. However, he has not won a race since the NHRA New England Nationals when he defeated his best friend Brown, as Torrence went 3.909 to Brown’s 3.948.
