From Leah:
This Dodge SRT Hellcat Redeye team is positioned well for Sunday eliminations. It was an interesting sort of events around qualifying this weekend at Norwalk. We had a great hot rod for Q1 on Friday night and the car hiked up the front wheels for substantially longer than we anticipated, and what’s most ideal for almost 200-feet, and I had to give it a light pedal to drop the nose down and that set off to a 3.83. We had a good, solid run for Q2 in the hottest session of the three. We have a very happy HEMI. We dropped a cylinder down there and ran a .81 and we were ready to break into the 70s and advance our qualifying position for Q3. But, we had those old gremlins pop up and give us some throttle stickage on the burnout, and unfortunately, we didn’t get to complete that run and I had to labor down and coast through. We would have liked to have had that full run, but I feel like we have enough progress from Q1 to Q2 to rip away at the competition on Sunday. Our heads are down and our eyes are focused and we’re ready to get this SRT Hellcat Top Fueler on the right side of some good races, and into the winner’s circle.
