Jack was the quickest Funny Car in the first session with a time of 4.108 seconds and settled for the No. 2 provisional position heading to Saturday's two sessions at 12:45 and 3 p.m. (EDT) heading to Sunday's championship eliminations.

The Sandvik/Valvoline Dodge was on a stellar run before slowing within a couple hundred feet of the finish line, which is evident by his speed of 275.96 mph. His time to 660 feet of the 1,000-foot track was the best of the day for Funny Cars.

Not too far behind Jack, the 2012 NHRA Funny Car world champion, is Ron Capps in the No. 4 position after the NAPA AUTO PARTS Dodge posted a time of 4.121 seconds (302.14) for the second best run of the late afternoon session.

In Top Fuel, Antron vaulted up to No. 4 with a time of 3.836, 315.78 on his last run as he carried momentum from winning the last NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series Top Fuel title two weeks ago near Phoenix.

The resurging U.S. Army team and driver Tony Schumacher were third quickest in the first session and posted a time of 3.858 seconds and his speed of 320.28 mph was fastest of the session and second fastest of the day.
