Beckman takes top spot in Funny Car at NHRA

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jack Beckman earned the top spot in Funny Car qualifying Saturday in the NHRA Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway.

Beckman had a time of 3.911 seconds at 332.18 mph during the second round.

“We didn’t have the best car on Saturday,” Beckman said. “Today’s conditions are going to be a lot more like the conditions we race in tomorrow. We just didn’t give credit to the sunshine out there since this is a warmer track than what we’ve run so far this year.”

Clay Millican topped qualifying in Top Fuel with a second run of 3.708 at 324.98 in his dragster.

Greg Anderson, a four-time champion in Pro Stock, led that category with his run of 6.522 at 213.00 in his Chevrolet.

Andrew Hines was No. 1 in Pro Stock Motorcycle with a fourth run of 6.773 at 198.64.
