Vance & Hines and Mission Foods Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Gaige Herrera is the provisional No. 1 qualifier on Saturday. Herrera went 6.746 at 198.96 mph on his Suzuki during the 69th annual Dodge Power Brokers NHRA U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park in Brownsburg, Indiana.
Herrera maintains the top spot following his track-record pass on Friday. Should his top spot hold up on Sunday, it would be his eighth No. 1 qualifier of the season in his first nine races.
“I was very pleased with that run, but I have to give all the credit to (crew chief) Andrew (Hines) and all the crew guys,” Herrera said. “Andrew has tons of data, and all that but he adjusts per the weather. It’s always last minute before we roll up Andrew is just finishing the final touches before the pass because he wants max performance every pass.
