Brittany Force, Ron Capps & Erica Enders Are Top Qualifiers At The NHRA Lucas Oil Winternationals

Brittany Force:

“Grubnic doesn't say much, and that's when I know we're gonna run pretty well. He just comes to me and says, ‘I'm not gonna say anything,’ and I'm like, I already know what that means. It's usually hold on tight We had a solid run we're safe in the show, so it gave us the opportunity to take some chances."

“I’m just happy to be back out here on my home track, starting a new season with the Monster Energy / Flav-R-Pac team. I'm excited to be back with all of them doing what we love, and even better to go No. 1 at the first race of the season.”

Ron Capps:

"We went up to really to run an .83, which is what Guido put in the car and started cooling off, actually too much, so we came back made some changes to slow it down," said Capps.

"Honestly, I was just hanging on; that thing it was a rocket ship. I could hear Hight over there and the fact that I didn't see his nose, but I knew he was right there, and that means if you're running with Jimmy Prock, you're running pretty darn good."

Erica Enders:

“I feel like this probably the best race car we've had in a long time, even considering the Countdown last year,” Enders said. “We had a goal in the offseason to come out swinging. I feel like we have something to prove, and the guys went to work hard in the engine shop.

“To lay down three really consistent runs like that during the three qualifying sessions. It definitely gives you confidence heading into raceday.”

A recap of the qualifying rounds from Saturday will air on FS1 at 7AM EST on Sunday morning and the Finals will be shown beginning at 10PM EST on FS1.
