Hight, Sampey Keep No. 1 Qualifying Spots At Bristol

There was a lot of bumping and shuffling during Saturday’s two qualifying sessions in Bristol and in the end, Friday leaders Robert Hight and Angelle Sampey held on to the top qualifying spots in Funny Car and Pro Stock Motorcycle respectively while Mike Salinas and Aaron Stanfield took the top spots in Top Fuel and Pro Stock. “We were trying to run a 3.75 [in Q3] and we ran 3.76. With 15 cars in the field, that means a bye run in Sunday’s opening round. With 15 cars here, we have a bye run and that’s huge. As a result, the reigning and two-time Factory Stock champion will race Wally Stroupe in round one. Rookie Camrie Caruso made two solid runs on Saturday including a 6.644 for the No. 1 for the 55th time in her storied career when Friday’s 6.874 run held throughout Saturday’s two Pro Stock Motorcycle runs. By that, I mean not trying to win it in the first round. Not everyone in the Pro Stock Bike class found the sweet spot during the three qualifying rounds.
