Friday at the newly renovated Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Pass near Phoenix didn't go as planned for Spencer Massey and the Battery Extender Powered by Schumacher team.
Massey, who had one of the most consistent dragsters at the season opener two weeks ago at Pomona, Calif., failed to make a full pull in his 10,000-horsepower machine and went into Saturday's two qualifying sessions outside the top-12.
Massey and the team led by crew chiefs Phil Shuler and Todd Okuhara will have to work off of that 3.821-second pass at 313 mph they clocked in Saturday's opening session after failing to make it down in the fourth and final session at Wild Horse Pass Saturday afternoon.
"We probably just got a little greedy," said Spencer. "We saw our teammate Tony Schumacher go out there and run a 3.75 and we just wanted to do that too. It got overcast and cooled down a little bit and we just tried to get after it. We'll take what we learned here and go after it tomorrow.
"We don't have lane choice but I'm not sure that matters. The new owners have done a great job on the new track surface and we'll go out there tomorrow and give it all we got and try to get past (Bob) Vandergriff in round one."
The following are Spencer's qualifying results from Wild Horse Pas Motorsports Park near Phoenix:
