Capco Contractors/Torrence Racing Top Fuel Dragster pilot Steve Torrence continues his dominance that he had through the Countdown of the Championship. After the first day of the 2019 season, Torrence is the provisional No. 1 qualifier on Friday at the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California. 

Torrence went 3.716 at 330.07 mph for the provisional No. 1 qualifier. He picked up the provisional lead on the first qualifying pass on Friday afternoon.

“Really good run to come out of the trailer,” Torrence stated. “We had a really good test session out in Phoenix and to come out here and pick up where we left off last year was the plan. Being able to come out and do it is a whole different thing and so far we are doing well. We are just trying to keep with the momentum.” 

Doug Kalitta — who won his only race at last season’s 2018 Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com — is the provisional No. 2 qualifier in his Mac Tools Top Fuel Dragster. He went 3.716 at 326.87 mph to get the second spot. 

Scott Palmer had his best day at a track. The Magic Dry Organic Multi-Purpose Absorbent sponsored pilot went 3.720 at 328.38 mph to be the provisional No. 3 qualifier. 

Scrappers Racing pilot Mike Salinas — who added Brian Husen as a crew chief with formerly Brittany Force’s crew members — is the provisional No. 4 qualifier. He went 3.729 at 324.28 mph. 

Capco Contractors/Torrence Racing’s Billy Torrence is the provisional No. 5 qualifier. The elder Torrence went 3.738 at 329.99 mph.
