Points leader Fuller finishes third

“We made a good solid run on Saturday afternoon,” Fuller said. “We went in test mode today to figure out how to get down hot race tracks. We have a lot more horsepower this year with that Canadian Horsepower from Rob (Flynn). Last year we were dominate on hot, greasy tracks, but this year we don’t have those tracks figured out. We do well on cool tracks. Rob (Flynn) is trying to figure out how to get down hot tracks. We felt good for that. The weather is supposed to cool off and that plays into our hands. I’ll never complain about qualifying third, and our teammate (Whit Bazemore) qualified fourth and we’re on opposite sides of the ladder.”
“The last run was to make sure we could go down the track,” Flynn added. “We should have been trying to push harder. We wanted a confident-boosting run. We’ve been spinning the tires when it’s hot out. We did what the car told us to do. Other than Whit (Bazemore), nobody really improved. I told David (Powers) if it ran a 4.55 to be happy. I feel good about tomorrow. We’ll see what the conditions are and adjust accordingly.”
Fuller will face off against No. 14 qualifier Mike Strasburg in the first round of Top Fuel eliminations.
