Snyder stole the show during the second qualifying session of Friday’s Summit Racing Equipment Ohio Drags VI at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio, running a career-best 3.598 at 209 mph to set a career-best, jump to the No. 1 spot in Pro Extreme, become the first driver in the 3.50s in 2012 and give him plenty of momentum for the rest of the weekend.
In Pro Nitrous, Doug Riesterer and Bob Rahaim are again neck and neck. After the two drivers in the points standings met in the finals earlier this month in Memphis, points leader Rahaim started the day with a 3.844. That held up early, but Riesterer grabbed the lead in the second session with an outstanding 3.843.
Robert Mathis also ran a stout 3.844 during the second session.
Through two sessions Alan Pittman is on top in Mickey Thompson Extreme 10.5, running 3.911 at 197 mph.
Dave Vantine set a massive career-best in Pro Extreme Motorcycle during the second qualifying session, going 4.071 at 175 mph to take over the top spot in PXM. Points leader Eric McKinney, the winner of three straight races and five overall in 2012, is right behind with a 4.08.
Lizzy Musi put together an awesome pass during the second round of Summit Racing Equipment Top Sportsman, running a 4.069 at 175 mph.
Todd Hoerner and his 4.056 is just ahead of Extreme Pro Stock points leader Cary Goforth and his 4.058 after two outstanding sessions. The bump of 4.127 is also impressive.
Adam Flamholc had a strong 3.934 during the second session of Aeromotive Fuel Systems Pro Modified qualifying, jumping to the No. 1 spot in the class. Raymond Matos and his 3.97 is the only other car to break into the 3-second range in the class thus far on Friday.
