WJ Opens Englishtown Qualifying in Third

Warren Johnson and the GM Performance Parts Pontiac Racing Team continued their run of solid performances during Friday's opening qualifying sessions for the NHRA SuperNationals, posting a 6.702-second, 206.20 mph pass on their second attempt to position themselves in the third position midway through qualifying.

With two attempts remaining on Saturday, Johnson immediately focused on how to further improve his standing.

"After tying Kurt (Johnson's son, who is the No. 1 qualifier at the qualifying midpoint) for the quickest time to 60 feet, we lost 17 thousandths to the 330-foot mark on our second run, after which we starting working our way back. Even so, we're pleased with today's performance. After all, our GM Performance Parts Grand Am was the quickest car in its lane in each of the two sessions.

"We'll see what Mother Nature brings us for tomorrow and work from there. We have a few issues in the tune-up to work on, but overall, we're in good shape."
