It would appear that the 46th annual Westernationals has the potential to become one of the greatest Top Doorslammer showdowns ever. The numbers being thrown around are definitely close to the 20-car count battling it out for eight positions. Now that’s got to be exciting for the fans.

After the epic final Top Doorslammer qualifier on Friday, today was all about going rounds. And rounds it was for the current ANDRA Champ John Zappia, fighting off some strong performances from the other teams.

For Top Fuel motorcycle it was a whole new day with their three-round format. And a new day brings new surprises with the two quickest bikes bowing out and giving Benny Stevens a popular win.
