Doug Kalitta leads Top Fuel qualifying at Thunder Valley

Posted: Updated:

BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Doug Kalitta led Top Fuel qualifying Friday at the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals, the only current track where he has failed to take a No. 1 qualifier.

Kalitta had a 3.781-second pass at 326.71 mph in the second session on the first of two days of qualifying.

"That was definitely the run to put one down," Kalitta said. "It was a good solid run and felt good the whole way. I was really hoping that would contend for low qualifier. This is the one place I haven't had the low qualifier so I hope to check that off the list."

Tim Wilkerson topped the Funny Car field, and Jeg Coughlin had the Pro Stock lead. Wilkerson had a 3.895 at 328.22 in a Ford Mustang, and Coughlin ran a 6.694 at 204.85 in a Chevrolet Camaro.
