Robert Hight wins NHRA funny car championship

Robert Hight won the NHRA funny car championship during qualifying on Saturday at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona.
He was the last driver to earn a spot in the Countdown to One playoffs. He went on to win three of the first five of the NHRA Countdown to One playoff races.
He was the third-fastest qualifier and will face Jerry Toliver in the first round of eliminations on Sunday.
During his post-qualifying interviews, Hight made reference to Eric Medlen, his one-time teammate at John Force Racing. Medlen was killed in a crash preparing for a race.
