NHRA New England Nationals Friday qualifying report

The first day of qualifying at the NHRA New England Nationals was hot and muggy, creating quite the challenge for crew chiefs in the nitro categories. The threat of wet weather in the later hours bumped Friday’s single session up by several hours, and Leah Pruett (Top Fuel) and Chad Green (Funny Car) had the best-prepared cars to claim respective provisional No. 1 qualifier awards.
