E4: 3.889 E.T. at 327.51 MPH defeated by J.R. Todd 3.872 E.T. at 329.10 MPH

Race Recap:
Coming off three consecutive No. 1 spots, Tommy Johnson Jr. started third after holding the provisional pole and earning 14 bonus points during qualifying. The two-time defending event champion at the season-ending Pomona race posted a 3.905-second E.T. at 327.59-mph in his Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car, second quickest of the first round, to beat Cruz Pedregon. Johnson survived a scare in the second round against Courtney Force when his engine initially would not fire up, but once his engine turned over, he lit up the board with a winning 3.913 E.T. that was quickest of the round.

Next up was an all-DSR Mopar Dodge semifinals battle with fellow ‘giving car’ pilot Jack Beckman. Johnson matched his quarterfinals E.T. of 3.913, paired with a speed of 325.06-mph, to outrun his teammate and advance to his fourth straight final round at the Auto Club NHRA Finals, third of the year and 48th of his career. Johnson left nothing on the table against newly-crowned Funny Car champion J.R. Todd, posting his quickest run of race day with a 3.889 at 327.51-mph, but it couldn’t match Todd’s winning 3.872-second pass. With his runner-up finish, Johnson moved to third in the final standings to lead all DSR Funny Car drivers and win the opportunity to drive a Dodge Hellcat for the year.

Quotable:
“It was a great weekend, we just came up a little bit short. I’m proud of my guys; we have such a strong race car. To come out here and finish the season on a competitive note, finish third in points, it’s hard to be ashamed of finishing third so, I’m extremely happy. You always want a better year, unless you’re No. 1, but all in all, not a bad year. I thank Dodge and Mopar for putting the Hellcat on the line for the highest finishing driver. That certainly was in the back of our mind and we’ll put it to good use this year.”

    DSR Domination Continues on Saturday at Auto Club NHRA Finals

    POMONA, California (November 10, 2018) – Leah Pritchett and Ron Capps swept the top qualifying spots in Top Fuel and Funny Car, respectively, at the 54th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals in Pomona, California.

    Pritchett’s No. 1 qualifier was her fourth of the year and the 11th of her career. Capps earned his first No. 1 spot of 2018, and 22nd of his career.

    Behind the wheel of her Mopar Dodge Top Fuel dragster, Pritchett was dominant, pocketing all eight possible points during Friday qualifying to earn the preliminary pole on a 3.649-second at 329.34-mph pass heading into Saturday. In the final pair of the last Top Fuel qualifying session of the 2018 season, Pritchett unleashed a monster 3.631-second at 332.84-mph run that tied for second quickest in the history of NHRA, reset the Auto Club Raceway Top Fuel track speed record and cemented the pole. Pritchett also collected 12 of 16 possible bonus points during qualifying. She’ll face Bill Litton in round one.

    “It was like a whole different level of fast tonight,” said Pritchett of her record-breaking Q4 pass. “I’ve been 334-miles per hour before, but this, at night, at Pomona; it’s incredible. Finally, for my crew chiefs, the car is communicating in a proper way, and it’s doing everything they’re throwing at it. (Crew chief) Todd (Okuhara) knows he’s finally got his race car back.

    “It feels like home,” added the Indiana resident of her native Redlands, California roots. “Here in Pomona, the fans give me that sense of home. For us to chase history on this track makes me feel like our team is very well on its way to earning a spot in history which is what we’re working towards.”

    Capps, third in the Funny Car points standings, improved steadily from the second session onward, ending his qualifying efforts with a 3.848-second at 331.53-mph pass to stake his claim to the No. 1 spot. While the driver of the NAPA AUTO PARTS Dodge Charger R/T has collected three wins over the course of the 2018 season, Saturday’s No. 1 qualifier was his first of the year.

    “I was joking around saying ‘man, you’d think I’d never gotten one of these green hats before’ because I was acting so giddy down there at the top end, but yeah, it’s been a while,” remarked Capps. “These No. 1s are a feather in the cap.

    “When they came on the radio after Q4 and told me what we’d run, I couldn’t believe it, but I’m so happy for (crew chief) Rahn Tobler. In Charlotte, we really showed that not only are we strong in the heat, but we’ve got the performance with the five-disc in cool conditions. We ran great, won the race, and we said we were so happy that we ran like that in those conditions because we were certain Pomona would be like that, and it is.”

    Capps locked in a date with No. 16 qualifier Ray Martin in the opening round.

Driver Information:
TOMMY JOHNSON JR.
Driver of the Make-A-Wish Foundation Dodge Charger R/T

Qualified: No. 3 (lane choice)

The Competition: No. 14 Cruz Pedregon

The Results:
Q1: 3.960 E.T. at 317.42 MPH (Four bonus points for quickest run of the session)
Q2: 3.881 E.T. at 328.54 MPH (Four bonus points for quickest run of the session)
Q3: 3.899 E.T. at 326.40 MPH (Four bonus points for quickest run of the session)
Q4: 3.867 E.T. at 326.40 MPH (Two bonus points for third quickest run of the session)

Bonus Points: 14

Quotable:
“We came in here trying to do what we wanted – to be as best as we can every single run. To be the worst of third in one session is pretty outstanding. Maybe that means No. 1 we haven’t been able to have success with so we’ll go out here tomorrow to see if we can’t turn number three into a win.”

DSR Pomona II Friday Highlights:

  • Leah Pritchett (Top Fuel) and Tommy Johnson Jr. (Funny Car) occupy the provisional No. 1 spots after day one of qualifying
  • Pritchett and Johnson swept Friday qualifying, running low E.T. of both Q1 and Q2 in their respective categories
  • Antron Brown holds the provisional No. 3 Top Fuel spot going into Saturday
  • Jack Beckman (No. 2) and Ron Capps (No. 5) join Johnson in the top half of the Funny Car field

    DSR Dominates Friday Qualifying at Auto Club NHRA Finals

    POMONA, California (November 9, 2018) – Leah Pritchett (Top Fuel) and Tommy Johnson Jr. (Funny Car) lead the nitro classes after day one of the 54th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals. The Mopar-powered teammates swept Friday qualifying, launching to session-best passes during both sessions.

    (EXCERPT)

    In Funny Car, Johnson is seeking his fourth consecutive No. 1 qualifier of 2018 and is well on his way to accomplishing that goal after the John Collins/Rip Reynolds tuning duo dialed the Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T to a 3.960 at 317.42-mph pass during round one, and then backed it up with a stout 3.881 at 328.54 to hold on to the top spot in round two.

    “We’ve had three No. 1’s in a row, and we come here, and there’s no reason we shouldn’t do that again,” said Johnson of his impeccably consistent Dodge Funny Car. “Tonight, I’m in the car and I’m listening to what the other teams ran before us and thought ‘okay we should be able to go 88’ and John said I’m going to try and get it to go 281 (mph) at half-track, that speed should get us to where we need to be. Sure enough, it ran 281 at half-track and went 3.88.”

    Johnson, who raced to the No. 1 qualifying position at Dallas, Charlotte II, and Las Vegas II, hopes to retain his top-of-the-pack standing going into Sunday as he attempts to capture the Auto Club NHRA Finals Wally for the third year in a row.

    “We came in here so confident,” said Johnson who captured the event win in 2016 and 2017 and finished as the runner-up in 2015. “When you’ve had that much success at one track, it’s hard to beat it because you’re not beating yourself. I feel comfortable here. I’ve been fortunate here; I wish more of them were like this.”


Pritchett, Johnson Jr., Coughlin, and Smith lead Friday Finals fields in Pomona

Category : NHRA news

  • Prichett pilots to the top of Top Fuel category both sessions
  • Two-time defending Funny Car event winner Johnson Jr. sits atop of the class
  • Coughlin Jr. leads Pro Stock category after final qualifying run
  • M. Smith extends points lead over Pro Stock Motorcycle with low E.T.’s both sessions

POMONA, Calif. – Leah Pritchett lit the candles on her Top Fuel dragster Friday evening and piloted to the top of the category for both qualifying sessions at the 54th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals at Auto Club Raceway.

Tommy Johnson Jr. (Funny Car), Jeg Coughlin Jr. (Pro Stock) and Matt Smith (Pro Stock Motorcycle) were also preliminary qualifiers in their respective categories at the final event of the 2018 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season.

Southern California native Pritchett raced to the top of the Top Fuel class with her 3.649-second pass at 329.34 mph in her Mopar Dodge dragster during the second session. She is seeking to secure her fourth No. 1 qualifying position of the season and 11th of her career.

“When you have this horsepower weather and this time of day you can just feel the energy,” Pritchett stated. “The reason why there’s a smile on our faces is that we were able to execute what we wanted to do. Tomorrow we’re not going to have these same conditions so that’s why we’re excited we were able to capitalize on it tonight.”

Clay Millican is qualified second with his pass of 3.702 at 327.19 in his Great Clips / Parts Plus dragster and three-time world champion Antron Brown is third with his run of 3.704 at 329.50. 2018 Top Fuel world champion Steve Torrence is qualified fourth as he seeks to make history by sweeping the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Countdown to the Championship events.

Two-time defending event champion Johnson Jr.’s second qualifying run of 3.881 at 328.54 in his Make-A-Wish Dodge Charger R/T locked-in the top spot. He is seeking to secure his fourth consecutive No. 1 qualifying position this season.

“It’s incredible they have had such a handle on the car,” said Johnson. “I wish we could get that handle on Sunday but we are pretty close. I’m disappointed we didn’t get it done quick enough in the Countdown but at the same time I’m excited because it is such a good car now. If we can carry that on to next year I would love it.”

Teammate Jack Beckman is in the second spot with his pass of 3.901 at 323.35 while reigning Funny Car world champion Robert Hight sits in the third position. Current points leader J.R. Todd is in the No. 11 spot.

Coughlin Jr., who is currently No. 2 in the Pro Stock points standings, raced his JEGS.com/Elite Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro to a 6.527 pass at 211.39 in the second round of qualifying.

“We made two really nice runs today,” Coughlin Jr. stated. “After Q1 we were on the poll and seeing some of our competitors bettering that mark ahead of us during the last three pair of Pro Stock were lower in the boom. I was concerned with the right lane because a lot of cars were getting loose out there and thought it was going to be tough to improve. When I let the clutch out the car just went singing down the track and it felt great.”

Teammate Erica Enders is currently in the second spot after racing a 6.530 at 211.39 in her Melling Performance/Elite Performance Chevrolet Camaro. Championship points leader Tanner Gray is currently qualified fourth.

In Pro Stock Motorcycle, Smith rode to a track record speed at 200.65 at 6.774 to lead the field on his Elite Motorsports DENSO Auto Parts EBR. Smith was the quickest in both qualifying sessions. Smith is the current category points leader and seeking to extend his lead.

“All in all, it was a good day for us,” Smith said. “We made two passes and were No. 1 for both runs. I got eight bonus points. We just have to go and win the race now and win the championship; no matter what anybody else tell us.”

Hector Arana Jr. qualified second with his pass of 6.824 at 198.96 on his Lucas Oil TV EBR and LE Tonglet is third with his run of 6.828 at 196.39.

Qualifying at the 54th annual Auto Club NHRA Finals continues Saturday at 12:00 p.m.
