BRISTOL, Tenn. – After two days of qualifying, Mike Edwards and Allen Johnson are on track for a rematch of the closest final in NHRA Pro Stock history.

Edwards captured the No. 1 position for Sunday's elimination rounds in the Ford Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway.  Meanwhile, Johnson earned the No. 2 seed for tomorrow's 16-car bracket.

Edwards ran a top time of 6.632 and a speed of 208.23 in Friday night's runs, and no one was able to improve on that through two more sessions Saturday.

“I love coming to this track and racing here,” said Edwards, who will meet JR Carr in the opening round. “It has been good to us over the years. It’s great to be running good here again. If we could get five in a row at this place, that’s phenomenal for me. We are just going to take it like we have been doing all year long. You never know. We feel like we have as good a chance as anybody.”

Edwards has won the last four Pro Stock events at Bristol.  Last year, he defeated the hometown favorite Johnson in a virtual dead heat, with the time margin of victory reading .0000 on the clock.

This weekend's No. 1 qualifying position was the 50th of Edwards' career – the ninth of the season for the 2009 Pro Stock champion.

Johnson is the reigning series champion, and would like nothing more than to give his dad and engine builder, Roy, a win on Father's Day at their home track.

Johnson will square off against Lewis Worden in the opening round of eliminations Sunday.
