Emery Hopes To Get On The Right Track In Front Of Hometown Crowd At AHDRA Event in Budd's Creek, Md.

BUDDS CREEK, MD.-- Jamie Emery hopes to erase every bad fortune that he's experience in 1999 by scoring a big way in front of his hometown contingent. The Colton's Point, Md.,-based Top Fuel Harley rider will have the opportunity to strut his stuff at this weekend's Top Fuel Harley event sanctioned by the All Harley Drag Racing Association and hosted by Maryland International Raceway.

"We're not running for the points," explained Emery. "We hope to use the data that we gain from running this weekend to improve our overall program. Our goal is to make a clean sweep of things for our hometown crowd. We want to qualify number one and win the event."

Emery will not exactly face a cakewalk as he will be paired against some of the most competitive nitro-burning scoots in the country.

This weekend's event will begin with qualifying slated for 11 AM on Saturday and another session scheduled for Sunday at 9 AM. Eliminations begin at 1 PM.

The next IHRA event scheduled for the G&H Jewelers/Jam-On Productions/Castrol Heavy Duty Lube-sponsored, Emery team will be at the IHRA CARQUEST Northern Nationals in Stanton, MI., on July 31 - August 2. Emery, along with the rest of the Top Fuel Harley contingent, will take assault on the Mid-Michigan Motorplex racing surface for the second race of the 1999 IHRA/Snap-On Tools Championship Series. Qualifying will begin with one session on Friday, followed by another two on Saturday. Final eliminations are slated to begin at noon on Sunday.
