Coming off a victory Sunday in Madison, Ill., Beckman became the third driver in Funny Car history to dip into the 3-second range with a track-record run of 3.989 seconds at 320.58 mph in his Dodge Charger. If he can post a time during the rest of the weekend at 4.029 seconds or quicker, Beckman will certify the time as an NHRA national record and receive a 20-point bonus. He entered the week second in the standings, 30 points behind Ron Capps.

Morgan Lucas led the Top Fuel field, V. Gaines topped the Pro Stock competition and Eddie Krawiec took the Pro Stock Motorcycle lead. Lucas had a run of 3.760 at 326.95 mph, Gaines finished at 6.544 at 209.62, and Krawiec had a 6.821 at 196.19.
