Courtney Force, Doug Kalitta and Alex Laughlin topped the speed charts after the second day of NHRA’s last test before the opening round.

Force powered her Advance Auto Parts Chevrolet Camaro SS down the strip at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in 3.839-seconds at 329.99mph.

Force, who qualified P1 seven times last year but went winless, edged Matt Hagan’s best of 3.851 at 330.72 in his Mopar Express Dodge Charger R/T and his Don Schumacher Racing teammate Tommy Johnson Jr.

Shawn Langdon, brand new to the Funny Car class in his Global Electronic Technology Toyota Camry, ran it to a 3.911 at 324.05.

“It’s been a big transition for me,” he said. “Everything I learned driving a Top Fuel dragster I take about 50 percent of that and throw it out the window. I’m excited for the challenge. I haven’t hit anything yet so that’s a positive.”

Doug Kalitta led the Top Fuel class with a pass of 3.688 at 331.12 in his Mac Tools dragster, beating reigning Top Fuel world champion Brittany Force’s 3.699 at 323.35.

In Pro Stock, Alex Laughlin drove his Gas Monkey Energy Chevrolet Camaro to a pass of 6.484 at 210.11 and teammate Erica Enders ran a 6.563 at 208.30 in her Melling Performance / Elite Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro.

Testing restarted today at 8am local time.
