In Funny Car, the DSR Dodge Charger R/T teams Powered by Pennzoil also produced a solid effort with all four drivers qualifying in the top half of the 16-car field for eliminations in which each will have lane choice in the first round.
 
The biggest turnaround was by two-time world champion Matt Hagan and the 80th Anniversary Mopar/Express Lane team led by crew chief Dickie Venables and assistant Michael Knudsen.
 
After a disappointing two events to open the Western Swing with second- and first-round losses, Hagan moved into the No. 2 spot at Pacific Raceways with a 3.930 (328.54) on Saturday's first run then closed the day with a 3.950 (327.90).
 
Hagan's best elapsed time matched the run by teammate Tommy Johnson Jr. (Terry Chandler's Make-A-Wish Dodge) on Friday night but Hagan's faster speed leapfrogged Johnson, who qualified third.
 
"We've had four good runs here and everything is jivin' and clickin'," Hagan said. "The car's gone down the racetrack every time and we have something we can race with tomorrow."
