Friday Leaders At NHRA Midwest Nationals Include Mike Salinas, Ron Capps and Greg Anderson

Salinas wowed the crowed in St. Louis with a 3.652 in his Scrappers Top Fuel dragster to take the provisional pole. Salinas holds a sizable lead over the field as reigning world champion Steve Torrence is second with a 3.702.

Funny Car points leader Ron Capps added three markers to his score on Friday with a 3.888, 332.59 to open qualifying at the NHRA Midwest Nationals. Capps ran alongside teammate and points rival Matt Hagan in the final pair of Funny Cars and the two world champions put on a show with side-by-side 3.8s at over 332-mph. Hagan, wearing the colors of New Holland Dodge on his Charger SRT, was just a thousandth of a second slower at 3.889.

Greg Anderson banked three qualifying bonus points after wheeling his Camaro to the provisional pole in Pro Stock during Friday’s lone qualifying run in St. Louis.

Pro Stock Motorcycle is off this weekend.
