Langdon qualifies No. 1 in Top Fuel

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) - Defending series champion Shawn Langdon held onto the top spot in Top Fuel qualifying Saturday in the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals.

Langdon piloted his dragster to a 3.753-second pass at 321.81 mph on Friday and the run held up as higher temperatures cooled the runs in the two qualifying sessions Saturday in the event that features racing in four lanes instead of the traditional two.

''We've had a really good car this year in qualifying,'' Langdon said. ''The Al-Anabi team has done an excellent job qualifying, getting toward the top, and we were able to get a couple of No. 1 qualifiers. Today, it was just very critical to make good runs in the lanes just because of having the four-wide, where you make one run in each lane.''

Ron Capps topped the Funny Car field, Chris McGaha was the fastest in Pro Stock, and Michael Ray led the Pro Stock Motorcycle competition.

Capps' 4.059 run at 314.24 on Friday was good enough to carry the Don Schumacher Racing driver to his first No. 1 qualifier of the season and 16th of his career.

McGaha claimed the second No. 1 qualifying position of his career with his 6.523 pass at 213.10 mph on Friday. Ray ran a 6.816 at 197.02 for Star Racing on a Buell.
