O’Reilly NHRA Midwest Nationals
Force continues strong pace
After the firsts session Force was in the No. 2 position and she slipped one spot in the second session when fellow female flopper driver Melanie Troxel out distanced her in a spectacular side by side match-up. Getting two good runs back to back on the heels of her first win has given the sophomore driver a big boost in confidence heading into Saturday.
“We are excited with both our runs today. Usually our pattern has seemed to be our first run on Friday isn’t that great and then we step it up. To get a great run in the first session today and wind up No. 2 and then to get another great run in the other lane gives us a lot of confidence. The guys were excited and I’m looking forward to tomorrow,” said the 2007 Rookie of the Year. “We are pretty secure in the field so that gives Guido and Ron (crew chiefs Dean Antonelli and Ron Douglas) the chance to be more daring if they want. If we smoke the tires we still have another shot and we should still be in good shape.”
