Time trials and qualifying have concluded at the NHRA Division 7 Lucas Oil Series Finals Presented by Short Line Express Market, with Morgan Lucas and Bucky Austin earning No. 1 Qualifier status in the Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car categories. Ideal racing conditions provided those in attendance Saturday at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway an opportunity to witness one of the quickest qualifying fields in recent history in both categories. Competitors needed to run quicker than 5.472-second in Top Alcohol Dragster and 5.801-second in Top Alcohol Funny Car to qualifying for Sunday's eliminations. "Hats off to the people who run this facility," said Austin. "This is a world class facility and they did a great job in preparing the track for this event." 2002 NHRA Div. 7 Top Alcohol Dragster champion Duane Shields of Las Vegas qualified fourth in a field of 24 -- and only the top eight will advance to eliminations. Between both classes, 43 alcohol cars made passes down the quarter-mile during Saturday's qualifying sessions as competitors came from as far away as New York, in efforts to accumulate points towards divisional and national championships. Five of the top 10 in the national points standings in each category also were part of the field. "Our number-one goal today was just to qualify," said Top Alcohol Dragster racer Mark Hentges. "To qualify in such a stellar field is an accomplish in itself." Now that qualifying has been completed, the official total number of cars and bikes entered at this event stands at 970, second only to Indianapolis in 2002. Low qualifiers in other categories are Jeff Taylor of Lumberton, N.C. (Comp), John Gallina of Las Vegas (Super Stock) and Marka Gallina of Henderson (Stock). All three racers as well as both Top Alcohol low qualifiers will receive a bonus from Sealed Power for their accomplishment.
