Capco Contractors Top Fuel Dragster pilot Steve Torrence was one of two pilots on Friday to get in the 3’s at Bandimere Speedway in Morrison, Colorado. Torrence went 3.787 at 330.31 mph at the 40th annual Dodge Mile-High Nationals presented by Pennzoil.

The Kilgore, Texas native also went a track record with his pass. In addition, the reigning Top Fuel champion also became the first Top Fuel pilot to go 330 mphs at Bandimere Speedway.

“I did not expect it to run that well,” said Torrence. “I knew our tune-up was pretty aggressive and saw a lot of cars ahead of us not make it down the track. I saw Richard [Hogan] come back and get into the box and we went out and made a great run. To run 330-mph on this mountain is very impressive and it shows what kind of handle we have on our tune-up.”

Mopar/Pennzoil sponsored Top Fuel Dragster pilot Leah Pritchett is the provisional No. 2 qualifier. The Avon, Indiana native — who won last year’s event in her category — went 3.839 at 321.35 mph.

Matco Tools Top Fuel Dragster pilot Antron Brown is the provisional No. 3 qualifier. The Pittsboro, Indiana native went 3.863 at 308.92 mph.

Rookie D-A Lubricants Top Fuel pilot Jordan Vandergriff is the provisional No. 4 qualifier. The Brea, California native went 3.864 at 317.87 mph.
