Chad Head, Driver
I tried to red light, my foot came back up and then I was just completely late. Then the car dropped a cylinder and it was pretty much over from there. He ran a 4.21 and we ran a 4.17 and got beat, so it’s a bummer, but the car will get better. It’s going in the right direction.

Note: Chad Head is filling in for Tequila Patrón Funny Car pilot Alexis DeJoria.
