DIXON FINISHES NINTH FRIDAY AT TOPEKA
TOPEKA, Kan. (May 26, 2006) Larry Dixon, the winningest active Top Fuel driver, drove his Don "the Snake" Prudhomme-owned Miller Lite dragster to the No. 9 provisional qualifying position Friday at Heartland Park Topeka.
The two-time NHRA Top Fuel champion opened qualifying at a warm Heartland Park by using a Don Bender tune-up to race to the fifth quickest pass of the first qualifying session as Dixon blasted his Miller Lite/Lucas Oil dragster to a performance of 4.696 seconds at 312.64 mph. Friday evening, under the lights at Heartland Park, Dixon's rail lost traction and coasted to a 10-second pass.
