Race Recap: After not seeing the results the team was looking for in Brainerd, the SealMaster team and J.R. Todd spent two days last week preparing for the NHRA's biggest race: the U.S. Nationals. They made several passes to learn and make progress on the tune-up prior to the Countdown for the Championship.

Todd and the SealMaster team used that data to have a solid start in qualifying. They were unable to improve on Sunday and Todd slipped to right below the top half line, starting in ninth.
...
Todd again moved first and earned his first U.S. Nationals semi-final. He drew rival Tony Schumacher, and the SealMaster machine smoked the tires early. Todd pedaled masterfully, but was unable to catch Schumacher's machine.
With the result, Todd earned the sixth seed in the Countdown for the Championship. That is his highest starting seed since joining Team Kalitta.
Statistics: Qualified: No. 7 (3.732 sec., 311.63 mph)
E1: Todd defeated Lucas - 3.718 sec., 326.56 mph to 4.373 sec., 181.64 mph
...
E2: Todd defeated Millican - 3.773 sec., 326.40 mph to 4.814 sec., 158.46 mph
...
