Anderson & Al-Balooshi Fastest At Doorslammer Nationals

ORLANDO, Fla. – Orlando Speed World Dragway continues to bring out the best in Pro Stock legend Greg Anderson. Al-Balooshi put in extensive work over the off-season adapting to the new manual shifter in his Bahrain 1 Racing ProCharger-powered ’19 Camaro. Al-Balooshi made the quickest run in both of the sessions, with his impressive blast of 5.659 seconds at 251.25 mph during the second qualifying session leading the way. Al-Balooshi estimated he made 30 runs with the manual shifter — which is now required in NHRA Pro Mod cars — in Bahrain in the off-season and he appears to have adjusted well. Al-Balooshi said he was a little off during the first qualifier when he went 5.735 seconds at 235.39 mph, but he more than made up for it just a few hours later. “We’ve got some new stuff in the car and made a couple of good runs. “Truthfully, I felt like we can run better than we did that second run,” Scruggs said. 2 spot, with Derrick Brown going 6.211 seconds in his ProCharger-boosted ’14 Camaro to round out the top 3 in the 27-car qualifying order. Record holder Jimmy Pelcarsky shot to the top of the $hameless Racing Pro 632 presented by C&C Pumping qualifying sheet in his small-block-powered ’15 Camaro with a 4.194-second pass at 170.45 mph.
