TORRENCE 11TH AFTER OPENING RUNS AT LAS VEGAS
March 30, 2012 -- Unexpected tire smoke Friday evening wasn’t the way Steve Torrence preferred to end Friday’s qualifying for Sunday’s SummitRacing Equipment.com Nationals.
His first trip down The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in 3.960 seconds at 308.99 mph in the Torrence Racing/Capco Contractors Top Fuel dragster was second-quickest of the session. However, racing conditions improved later in the day and when it was over, he was 11th.
“We weren’t too happy with the last run,” said Torrence. “The car has consistently gone down the track. The crew will find out what caused it. I’m confident we will bounce back Saturday.”
He has two more attempts coming up.
