COMMERCE, GA -- After day one of the 18th annual NHRA Fram Nationals at Atlanta Dragway, Paul Romine and the CARQUEST Top Fuel dragster team are qualified 10th with a 4.806 /288.92. “With the weather questionable throughout the weekend, we just wanted to get into the show and we accomplished that in the first round of qualifying with the 4.80,” Romine said. “In the second session we went for it and just overpowered the track. If the rain holds off tomorrow we’ll try to get ourselves on the other half of the latter and get a race day setup.” The final two sessions of qualifying are scheduled Saturday at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. (EDT). ESPN2 will televise highlights from qualifying Saturday from 10 p.m. - 12 midnight.
