Langdon had a 3.705-second run at 326.32 mph against Pruett for his 17th career win at second at Indy.
“There’s been a lot of hard work that has gone into this team,” NHRA driver Shawn Langdon said. “We’ve had an awesome car the entire weekend and it’s just a great team. How much work they put into this, it’s really impressive. This is an awesome deal, and when I hit the gas I knew we had it as long as we didn’t smoke the tires.”
