Massey, Force, Enders, Hines Lead Indy Qualifying

Spencer Massey

Spencer Massey, Courtney Force, Erica Enders and Andrew Hines topped the second day of qualifying on Saturday for Monday’s 58th annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals presented by Auto-Plus at Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis.

Under cloudy skies and persistent rain showers from the remnants of Hurricane Isaac, teams worked late into the evening to try and get a handle on track conditions, with an eye on critical bonus points in the final event before the Countdown to the Champion field are set.

Massey rallied from a dismal outing in Friday’s opening round of qualifying to bounce back from 24th to first with a pass of 3.762 at 324.51 mph to bump Morgan Lucas from the top spot and also earned him a victory in the inaugural $100,000 NHRA Traxxas Nitro Shootout, a special bonus race within a race.

“For Traxxas to come into our sport and put up this much money and add these two bonus races is awesome,” Massey said. “I can’t believe that we won it. We’ve wanted to win it since we qualified when we won the season opener and it’s been a lot of pressure this week but it’s been awesome to be able to say we won the first Traxxas Nitro Shootout.”

Tony Schumacher held the second spot with a time of 3.772 at 326.79 mph. Shawn Langdon (3.773/326.48) was third followed by Lucas (3.792/311.63) and Antron Brown (3.807/322.34) with two rounds of qualifying still to go on Sunday.

Courtney Force

Courtney Force set a career-best low ET during her final qualifying run on Saturday, setting a track speed record with a pass of 4.049 at 317.27 mph to knock Jack Beckman off the provisional pole. It would be Force’s first no.1 qualifier effort if she can hold onto the top spot through Sunday’s qualifying.

“I have all the faith in the world in my guys,” Force said. “They’ve been working hard all season, and to get a career best at Indy, it’s huge. This is the one track that you want to say it at, and it’s pretty cool that it’s the Big Go and it’s my career best, an awesome time, so we’re excited.”

Beckman had held the top spot through the first two round of qualifying, but couldn’t improve on his second round effort of 4.051 at 310.70 which left him sitting in second ahead of Tim Wilkerson (4.060/306.60), Alexis DeJoria (4.064/314.39) and Ron Capps (4.064/314.39).

Erica Enders

Erica Enders continued to extend her remarkable season in Pro Stock. Having already become the first female driver to score a win in the division, Enders now has her sights set on a win at Indy, putting up the mark to beat in the opening round of Friday that no one was able to touch through Saturday’s two rounds.

Enders run of 6.624 at 208.84 mph gave her the top spot over Vincent Nobile (6.631/208.78), Allen Johnson (6.634/208.42), Jason Line (6.646/208.52) and Greg Anderson (6.655/208.17).

“It has been a really long day,” Enders said. “We had been changing our setup back and forth. We thought we were going to run once, and then it started with the rain. And every time the weather comes in and things change, we have to re-assess our setup and go back and change everything. It’s a tough time with a day like today, but we went out and made a pretty good run early in the day and were able to keep the number one spot, and that’s exciting, so I’m proud of my guys.”

Rain washed out the third round of qualifying for the Pro Stock Motorcycle division with Andrew Hines still atop the leaderboard with a quick time of 6.928 at 194.21 mph from Friday’s session. Hector Arana, Jr. managed to improve his time in the second session, but his 6.932/193.05 wasn’t enough to beat Hines. Hector Arana, Sr. moved up from fifth to third with a run of 6.950/192.11 on Saturday. Eddie Krawiec (6.953/192.93) and Scotty Pollacheck (6.978/188.67) rounded out the top five.
