“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.
