O'Reilly NHRA Summer Nationals
Herbert drives to the No. 6 spot
Determination won out. Herbert drove the Snap-on dragster to a 4.626-second pass at 322.04 mph. Herbert's dragster lost traction almost immediately, forcing Herbert to pedal the car and get it back on track.
"I just wasn't going to let that run go," Herbert said. "It was definitely better than the first pass of the day. It was a move in the right direction but we need to keep improving and just make that one, solid run straight down the track."

"The track temperature dropped quite a bit from the first session," Herbert said. "Guys either made a great pass down the track or didn't get to half track before smoking the tires. I'm glad we got the car down the track and am in the top half of the field going into the second day of qualifying.
"Tomorrow (Saturday) could be a completely different game. It could be warm and that would require an entirely different setup. We'll get out here bright and early and see what we can do."
