KJ Sits Second Midway Through Topeka Qualifying

Kurt Johnson and the ACDelco Cobalt Racing team continued their string of strong performances during the first day of qualifying at the O'Reilly NHRA Summer Nationals in Topeka, KS. After opening with the sixth-quickest time in the afternoon session, Johnson picked up the pace on his second attempt, covering the quarter-mile in 6.731-seconds with a top speed of 204.42 mph, placing him in the second position midway through the qualifying procedure.

"We were off a little bit on the first run, which had us scratching our heads a little. Fortunately, we had all the information to look at, and everyone on the ACDelco Cobalt crew did a great job, making the right calls, which helped us lay down that 6.731-second pass tonight.

"Sitting in the second spot on Friday night, we're pretty pleased. I've looked at the forecast for tomorrow, and I believe things look promising. We're really going to get after it, seeing what we can do to grab the top spot."
