Hagan's track-record Friday run of 4.001 seconds at 320.20 mph in his Dodge Charger gave him his fifth No. 1 qualifying position of the season and the 15th of his career.

``I feel like yesterday was one of those deals where we set ourselves up where we needed to, and then today, you come out and try to work on race-day setup,'' Hagan said. ``Today we missed a little bit early when it was hot out, and then it was just a little bit weak on the second session, but I've got all the confidence in the world in (crew chief) Dickie Venables. He's going to do a great job tomorrow, and we're going to turn four win lights on and hold up the trophy at the end of the day.''

Shawn Langdon led the Top Fuel field, Allen Johnson was fastest in Pro Stock, and Hector Arana Sr. topped the Pro Stock Motorcycle lineup in the third of six races in the Countdown to the Championship.

Langdon and Johnson also had their fastest runs Friday. Langdon with a 3.761 at 326.40, and Johnson with a 6.512 at 212.29 in his Dodge Avenger. Arana had a 6.796 at 198.58 on a Buell.
