2014 NHRA: Spencer Massey NHRA Natioanls at Brainerd Qualifying Report: No. 7

Massey and his tuning duo of Phil Shuler and Todd Okuhara appear to have continued their mastery of Brainerd International Raceway after leaving with the Wally trophy from Brainerd last August. While only qualifying seventh, the bright red Battery Extender rail made four qualifying laps between 3.838 and 3.875-seconds earning five bonus points in qualifying.

"Our car is finally acting like the car it should have been the last six or seven races," a confident Massey said of the team's qualifying performance. "We won here last year and I don't know what it is about this track at Brainerd, but our car wants to run here.

"We were low of the session for Q1 and should have been for the Friday night run and were just a tick slower than Antron (Brown) in Q3. Our best lap was in the final session and that got us into the top half of the field and lane choice. We're going down the track in the heat and that's awesome. It's fun for me as a driver because the car is running fast, but it's also carrying the front end and it's awesome to be a driver in a great car like we have this weekend."

Massey, who doubled-up with DSR teammate Ron Capps for the nitro wins last August at Brainerd, qualified in the top half of the 16-car field for the eighth time this season. He will face off against No. 10 qualifier Khalid alBalooshi, another two-time Top Fuel winner this season, in the first round of final eliminations at 11 a.m. (CT) on Sunday.

No. 1 Qualifier: Antron Brown (Don Schumacher Racing) 3.810 sec., 318.77 mph
