Driver Information:
Funny Car:

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

Qualified: No. 7 (lane choice)

The Competition: No. 10 Cruz Pedregon

The Results:
Q1: 5.176 E.T. at 141.28 MPH
Q2: 3.988 E.T. at 322.04 MPH
Q3: 4.089 E.T. at 314.53 MPH
Q4: 4.149 E.T. at 257.28 MPH

Quotable:
“Q4 was actually a much better run than that 4.14. It had an issue there on the top end, but this Make-A-Wish Foundation Dodge is a good, strong race car. We ran in the threes (second zone) during qualifying. We had a good car during both runs today in the heat so I think it’ll be a good day tomorrow.”
