Vandergriff ends Friday Qualifying in the No. 12 position

Las Vegas (April 7)- The UPS Top Fuel dragster enjoyed Friday evening at the NHRA Summitracing.com Nationals at the Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after qualifying in the No. 12 position. Bob Vandergriff Jr. piloted his 7000 horsepower Jim Dupuy-tuned machine to a 4.608 second pass at 326.16 mph in the cool desert air.

"We were pleased we made it down the racetrack, even though it wasn't a very good run," said Vandergriff. "One thing we can gain from that is we made a bad run and it still ran a 4.60. We're pretty confident we can run much quicker than that. We are encouraged because we made some changes to the car that it didn't like, so we're going to fix that. We seem to have found something that is going to help us be more consistent going down the track."
