Doug Kalitta was the Top Fuel No. 1 qualifier at the 17th annual NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway in Friday evening.

Kalitta guided his Mac Tools dragster to a 3.781-second run at 326.71 mph during the second round of qualifying. Bristol is the lone track on the series schedule that Kalitta has yet to earned a No. 1 qualifier.

“That was definitely the run to put one down,” Kalitta said. “It was a good solid run and felt good the whole way. I was really hoping that would contend for low qualifier. This is the one place I haven’t had the low qualifier so I hope to check that off the list.”
