Schumacher has nine victories in the NHRA's flagship event.

''It's huge to get that run,'' Schumacher said. ''Now we can go out and try to dominate the weekend and win the Traxxas Nitro Shootout and the race. We have the opportunity to do something special here and win this race for a 10th time.''

Del Worsham topped the Funny Car field in the regular-season finale, points leader Jason Line took the Pro Stock lead, and Eddie Krawiec was the fastest in Pro Stock Motorcycle.

After the event, the top 10 in each event will race for season titles in the six-race Countdown to the Championship playoffs.

Worsham had a 4.044 at 313.73 in his Toyota Camry, Line finished in 6.623 at 208.78 in a Chevy Camaro, and Krawiec had a 6.930 at 193.57 on a Harley-Davidson.
