BRAINERD, Minn. (AP) — Funny Car points leader Matt Hagan topped qualifying Friday in the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway.

Hagan had a run of 4.044 seconds at 315.34 mph in his Dodge Charger. He has four event victories this year.

“This whole year has been phenomenal,” Hagan said. “We’re going to keep working hard. Dickie (Venables, crew chief) put a great horse under me, and I’m riding it. We have a consistent car, and it shows on the track and in the points.”

Clay Millican led the Top Fuel field, and Vincent Nobile topped Pro Stock qualifying. Millican had a 3.773 at 326.63, and Nobile finished in 6.580 at 209.43.
