NHRA Funny Car driver Matt Hagan drove to the preliminary top spot with a run of 3.913 at 324.75 in his Sandvik Coromant Dodge Charger SRT HELLCAT during the second qualifying session of the evening. Hagan is on the hunt for his fourth No. 1 qualifier of the year and first career top spot at Pacific Raceways.
“This new HELLCAT body is running really good,” Hagan said. “Its running better than what we are trying to run with it. Right now we are dialing the car in and this new body in so we’re pretty focused on that. All in all though we’re really happy.”
Hagan and his team, struggled at the Dodge Mile-High Nationals Powered by Mopar at Bandimere Speedway with their new HELLCAT Funny Car body. In Sonoma last weekend, Hagan and his Mopar team went to the second round, before getting eliminated by his teammate Ron Capps in the older Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car body. Looks like the team has their act turned around this weekend.
