NHRA Spring Training continues at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park - FRIDAY

We're working on going through all the great Friday photos that Bob Snyder sent us from "Spring Training". It might be tomorrow before they're all posted, but stay tuned.

Day two at Wild Horse Pass is in the books and the action heated up considerably during the second go-round. At the end of the day a total of 15 Top Fuel drivers and 14 Nitro Funny Car pilots had made at least one pass. Pro Stock showed much less participation with only six drivers making an attempt so far. Notable by their absence - at least on the track as they are in the pits - were KB Racing teammates Greg Anderson and Jason Line.

Of the Top Ten drivers in the 2017 Top Fuel standings, all made at least one pass so far, with #7 Shawn Langdon switching allegiance and jumping into the Global Technologies funny car of Kalitta Motorsports. On the fuel coupe side of the pits, all of the Top Tenners, except Tim Wilkerson have tested the track, but he will be back in his car Saturday after letting recently licensed Chad Green get some more seat time. Green showed that he's a quick learner after moving up from Pro Mod, with his best pass of the day being a 3.90 at 313 mph.

Joining the regular competitors were part-timers, like Top Fuel's Blake Alexander in Bob Vandergriff's car, who ripped off a very strong 3.77 pass that ended at the 800 ft. mark. He followed up that effort with an even better 3.755 at "only" 284 mph. Rookie Greg Carillo, who made his TF debut at Denver last year didn't get past the 100 ft. mark before igniting the tires. Finally, Terry Brian made his first pass towards upgrading his Fuel Altered license to Top Fuel and shut off very early to a high 7-second number.
