Gatornationals: Day Two
Some of the top Drag Racers are here in Gainesville for Gatornationals, including Top Fuel drivers Brittany Force, and Antron Brown.
Force is coming back to defend her title. She says, "I won here last year, so the Monster team is back, and we want to reclaim our title and take home another win."
Brown says he's excited to be back as well. "I've been here at the Gator since 1998 was my debut, my rookie driver. My first professional race ever was here at Gainesville, so it always holds a special place in my heart. I've won here numerous times, and when you win here, this is a special place to win, because it's one of our biggest races of the year."
Force says the pressure is on, but no more than usual. "There's always pressure, there's something new. Whether you won here last year or you got beat here last year. There's always that added pressure, but that's what makes it exciting, and you know drives you all weekend."
Brown stands at third, and Force stands at fourth, at the end of the first day of qualifiers.
Qualifying races continue on Saturday, and the finals are scheduled for Sunday.
