BAYTOWN, Texas (AP) — Brittany Force had the fastest pass in Houston Raceway Park history Friday to take the lead in Top Fuel qualifying at the final NHRA SpringNationals. Force broke her own speed record at the track with a 3.695-second run at 333.58 mph. The track that hosted its first national event in 1988 is closing after the event to make room for Katoen Natie’s expanding port facility.
