Fellow Californian John Durden had the next-best qualifying pass with a lap of 5.826 seconds at 252.90 mph.

Day 2 of qualifying for drag racing’s marathon kicked off at 8 a.m. PST and will run through the evening. Results, photos, videos, and updates can be found at the official page on Facebook, Street Car Super Nationals Las Vegas.
“We couldn’t ask for better conditions,” said event promoter Mel Roth. “Jeff Foster and his crew here at The Strip have provided us with an incredible racing surface, as always. That, along with the weather, we’re already seeing some impressive runs and with the hundreds of cars we have on property, I think we’ve got another record-breaking weekend ahead of us.”
