Top Fuel driver Doug Foxworth's dragster was destroyed during third round qualifying when the frame bowed and broke in two. Foxworth was removed from the car, alert and conscious, and was transported to Sefton Exeter Hospital. Preliminary reports from the hospital are that Foxworth has a broken rib and is otherwise in good condition.

Fred Hahn saved the best for last in Pro Modified. Hahn laid down a 6.179/226.87, the quickest pass in IHRA Pro Modified history.

Doug Vancil was unable to back up his earlier Nitro Harley pass of 219.03 mph to make that the new world record. However, in his final qualifying attempt, he ran 215.46 mph to make that the new world record.
