The run also was the quickest in Worsham's career and the best Funny Car time this season. He reached a top speed of 314.83 mph in his Toyota Camry.

``It was a great run,'' Worsham said. ``I was kind of wowed myself. The car's been running better at every individual race. The crew chiefs along with Jim Oberhofer and Connie Kalitta have been working together and making a lot of headway. I'm really excited for the guys on this team. For the last six years, they've been working really hard to find success and I feel really good about where we're going.''

Jack Beckman was second at 4.012 at 317.05, breaking the track speed record in his Dodge Charger.

Spencer Massey led the Top Fuel field, and Mike Edwards topped the Pro Stock lineup, both breaking the track and time and speed marks. Massey had a 3.775 at 326.79 mph, and season points leader Mike Edwards finished at 6.645 at 207.72 in a Chevy Camaro for ninth No. 1 of the season and 50th overall.
