Quotable:
“We’re feeling good right now. We backed off today; we wanted to get down the track today because we knew it was going to be hot tomorrow. The track can definitely hold more, but we’re just going to keep working on it and make it better. That Q4 run was a good run in the heat of the day, but high 3.70s is what we want.”

Note: With 499 Top Fuel round wins, Brown is on the verge of reaching No. 500 and will become the sixth Top Fuel pilot in NHRA history to reach that milestone. He will join a list that includes Tony Schumacher, Larry Dixon, Doug Kalitta, Joe Amato, and Corey McClenathan.
“It would truly be an honor to get 500 Top Fuel round wins. I’ve always had a love and passion for this sport. Just to be amongst those names, it’s all a Jersey kid could ever dream of. It would be truly incredible, but we’re not done yet. We want to keep on pushing forward, but all those guys are my heroes and just to have my name said with them means a lot to me.”
