On the strength of a 6.729-second, 205.69 mph pass recorded on Friday, Warren Johnson qualified his GM Performance Parts Grand Am 10th for Sunday's final eliminations of the NHRA Supernationals in Englishtown, NJ.

Although Saturday's conditions were ideal for the normally aspirated Pro Stock category, the Johnson crew found themselves battling a tricky race car. However, their consecutive 6.76-second runs were enough to propel WJ into the semi-finals of the Pro Stock Challenge, where his pursuit of second all-star event win fell shy against his son, and eventual winner, Kurt Johnson.

"Our performance is not where we should be, and we have all the right parts, so we must be putting the square pegs in the round holes. Fortunately, it was still a good day for Warren Johnson Enterprises, as Kurt was able to win the Pro Stock Challenge.

"We need to go over our notes and find out where the problem area is. Looking at the forecast, it could be a completely different situation tomorrow, which could help us. The important part is that our GM Performance Parts Grand Am is in the field, and as long as we have a place to start from, we have a good chance of ending up in the winner's circle."
