Scrappers Racing pilot Mike Salinas is the provisional Top Fuel qualifier on Friday at Pacific Raceways in Kent, Washington. The San Jose, California native went 3.694 at 327.66 mph at the Magic Dry Organic Absorbent NHRA Northwest Nationals.

If his number holds up, it’ll be his fourth No. 1 qualifier of the season. It’ll also be his fifth No. 1 qualifier of his career, as well.

“I think that [tuner Alan Johnson] was shooting for a .68, so that was pretty close,” said Salinas, who also qualified No. 1 in Las Vegas, Charlotte, and Chicago. “The car has a lot left in it; I think Alan is just testing the water. It’s really smooth, really clean, really nice. Having a good run [Friday] gives you the recipe for the rest of the weekend, and as long a we do our job we’ll have a great showing.

“There is nobody out there who’s messing around — the Torrence’s, Brittany [Force], Clay [Millican] == who are all stepping up. You have to bring you’re A game on Sunday or you’re going home early.”
