KENT, Wash. (AP) - Top Fuel points leader Shawn Langdon shattered the Pacific Raceways record to top qualifying Saturday in the NHRA Northwest Nationals.

Coming off his season-leading fourth victory of the season last weekend in Sonoma, Langdon powered his dragster to a pass of 3.765 seconds at 320.58 mph to earn his fourth No. 1 qualifier of the season and 10th of his career. David Grubnic ran an identical 3.765 at 317.57 during the second qualifying session, but Langdon stayed in the top spot because of his faster speed.

Jack Beckman topped the Funny Car field, and Mike Edwards led Pro Stock qualifying.
