TOPEKA, Kan. --

Tony Schumacher
Tony Schumacher raced to the qualifying lead in Top Fuel Friday at the 25th annual NHRA Kansas Nationals.

Schumacher, the series points leader in the 8,000-horsepower category, posted a 3.769 second run at 326.08 mph in his dragster to move from the bottom of the qualifying order up to the top of the 16-car field at Heartland Park Topeka.

"The track was really smooth," Schumacher said. "My (crew) took a good look at it and made the decision to go fast. (Crew chief) Mike Green made a great call there under the pressure after being bumped out of the top 12. It was a great run."

Robert Hight (Funny Car) and Mike Edwards (Pro Stock) also were qualifying leaders at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event.

Hight set the pace in Funny Car, powering his Ford Mustang to a leading effort of 4.067 at 302.62.

In Pro Stock, series points leader Edwards continued his recent momentum in the category by posting a leading performance of 6.618 at 208.55 in a Chevy Camaro.

The final two qualifying sessions are Saturday at 12:15 and 2:30 p.m. Sunday's eliminations are scheduled for 11 a.m.
