It's the second consecutive year that Brown has been the number one qualifier at Bandimere, where he won from the top spot last season. Two other Toyota Top Fuelers qualified in the top half of the field, earning lane choice in tomorrow's first round as Larry Dixon is fifth and Shawn Langdon sixth. Morgan Lucas placed 12th. Both Toyota Camry Solara Funny Car drivers qualified well this weekend.

Del Worsham placed third, while Cruz Pedregon is sixth.
