Mopar Dodge SRT Hellcat Redeye Top Fuel Dragster

Qualified: No. 5 (lane choice)

The Competition: No. 10 Scott Palmer

The Results: 
Q1: 4.104 E.T. at 203.92 MPH
Q2: 3.732 E.T. at 318.77 MPH

From Leah:
It was a very progressive qualifying day for the SRT Hellcat Redeye team. Especially after St. Louis and having to front-half a car and put it together for battle this weekend here at Dallas. The first hit we had some fuel system issues and then we made a couple of tuning adjustments and sent it right down Broadway. For me, that was very rewarding after the last race. If you didn’t have any apprehension, you wouldn’t be human. We feel human today and we feel like we got our momentum back and we’re looking forward to hitting four jackpots tomorrow with this Mopar dragster.

Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak

Qualified: No. 12

The Competition: No. 5 David Kramer

The Results:
Q1: 8.002 E.T. at 172.56 MPH
Q2: 8.001 E.T. at 170.82 MPH

From Leah:
We made a lot of major changes between Q1 and Q2, from Friday to Saturday, and we had nearly the same result. Where we qualified was in the No. 12 spot. We know what our handicap is and we’re not able to adjust for that this season. We will try to put as much power to the ground as we can and Mark’s (Pawuk) car is carrying the Mopar flagship and it’s important to keep him fighting for the Factory Stock championship. I love this class. It’s a lot of fun and I love running for Mopar and to compete and win.
