‘Real horsepower’ fuels Tasca in NHRA qualifying


TOPEKA, Kan. — Bob Tasca III topped Funny Car qualifying for the second straight event on Saturday in the Menards NHRA Nationals at Heartland Motorsports Park.

Tasca’s Friday run of 3.930 seconds at 323.81 mph in a Ford Mustang held up for his ninth career No. 1 qualifier.

“That track is so good out there and this air is so hard to make power, but this Mustang showed them we’re out here making some real horsepower,” Tasca said. “Hats off to the guys, but I’ll tell you one thing, we got a yellow [No. 1 qualifier] hat in Seattle, and we didn’t get to trade it in for a blue [winner’s] hat. Tomorrow, we want to trade this thing in for a blue hat.”

Mike Salinas took the No. 1 spot in Top Fuel, Greg Anderson in Pro Stock and Joey Gladstone in Pro Stock Motorcycle.

Salinas, a four-time winner this year, had a 3.754 at 323.19 on Friday. Anderson picked up his second straight No. 1 and 120th overall with his Friday run of 6.623 at 205.44 in a Chevrolet Camaro. Gladstone had a 6.831 at 195.08 on a Suzuki, also Friday.
