O’Reilly NHRA Spring Nationals
Neff races into field
Houston, Friday: Rookie of the Year front-runner Mike Neff and his Old Spice Ford Mustang were on the outside of the qualified field but at the end of the day had blasted down the Houston Raceway quarter mile and landed solidly in the top half of the field in the No. 3 position.
“It will be important to make two runs tomorrow in the middle of the day. Obviously the night session gives us really good conditions but we won’t see those on race day. You need to go down the track on Friday night for qualifying spot but it really won’t mean that much come Sunday,” said Neff, the former motocross racer from Hemet, Calif. “Ideally, we’ll have the same conditions tomorrow that we’ll have on race day and I’d like to get two good runs tomorrow.”
