BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) -- Brittany Force raced to the No. 1 qualifying position in Top Fuel on Saturday in the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway.

Force claimed her second No. 1 qualifier in the last three events with her Friday run of 3.828 seconds at 317.94 mph in her 10,000-horsepower dragster.

Del Worsham led the Funny Car lineup, and Shane Gray topped the Pro Stock field.

Worsham set both ends of the track record Friday with a 3.992 at 319.45 in his Toyota Camry. He also topped qualifying last year in the event.

Gray set both ends of the Bristol Dragway track record and secured his first career No. 1 qualifying position with a 6.621 at 208.78 in a Chevy Camaro.
