Make-A-Wish Foundation Funny Car pilot Tommy Johnson Jr. is the provisional No. 1 qualifier on Friday night at the 33rd annual AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas. The Avon, Indiana native went 3.958 at 323.66 mph in the second session to claim the top spot on the first day of the event.
Johnson Jr. is looking to pick up his first No. 1 qualifier of the season in his Dodge Charger.
“The first few cars ran, and they were a little bit quicker than I thought they were going to be,” said Johnson of the second Funny Car qualifying session. “It had cooled, but not a lot. We ran well first round, went down the race track so it gave us the opportunity to step on it. (Crew chief) John (Collins) got after it pretty good.
“It’s always fun to watch him when the cars are starting to run good out there and he comes back and lifts the box and twists the knobs. Another car runs good so he comes back and twists ‘em some more. I knew it was either going to smoke the tires or run really good.”
