2014 NHRA: Matt Hagan NHRA Sonoma Nationals Qualifying Report: No. 5


A well-rounded race car is important in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series and that's what Matt Hagan has heading into Sunday's NHRA Sonoma Nationals eliminations at Sonoma Raceway.

The 426 Race HEMI 50th Anniversary Tribute Mopar Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car qualified fifth for Sunday's eliminations that begin at 11 a.m. PT.

While his best qualifying effort, a 4.075-second lap at 307 mph, came on Friday night at the picturesque Sonoma facility, it was the 4.169-second effort on Saturday afternoon that impressed Matt.

"We weren't the best of that third session but we had a great lap in the heat," Matt said at the conclusion of Saturday's final qualifying run. "We didn't make it down the track in the final session but we were pushing it to see how far it would go and we ended up getting some really good data for Sunday.

"Dickie (Venables) has done a great job this weekend and I think we have a solid hot rod for Sunday's eliminations. First round should be a little bit cooler and maybe even overcast which we haven't seen yet this weekend. We know we have some good data from Friday night for that."

Matt will race Tony Pedregon in the first round.

"We just need to go rounds on Sunday and gain some more points," Matt said. "It would be pretty cool to get this special HEMI 50th anniversary car in the winner's circle for all the folks at Mopar."
