PERSONETT TOPS GET SCREENED AMERICA PRO MOD SERIES QUALIFYING FRIDAY AT O'REILLY AUTO PARTS NHRA NATIONALS

CONCORD, N. C. -- Brad Personett led the field following two rounds of qualifying for the Get Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series at the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Nationals.

Personett, who sits fifth in the points, was able to take his Big Stuff 1968 Camaro to the top of the pack with a time of 5.843 seconds at 249.26 mph.

Holding down the number two qualifying position was Rick Stivers in his Brad Anderson tuned 2006 Dodge Stratus with a pass of 5.941 seconds at 241.97 mph.

"The amazing thing about that run," said Stivers after catching his breath, "is that there's even more left in her. It spun and shook a little, and I had to pedal it to keep it going straight - but, I'll take that '94 right now. I think Brad was even impressed with my driving on that run, and I'll tell you, it's hard to get that man to smile."

Current point's leader in the category, Von Smith and his Dr. Moon / Al-Anabi 1968 Camaro, sits in the third spot with a pass of 5.942 seconds at 244.52 mph. Smith has three wins this season and leads the second place racer in the category by 74 points.

The Gets Screened America Pro Mod Drag Racing Series racers will get one more qualifying session at 11 a.m. on Saturday with first round of eliminations to start at 3 p.m.
