ALAN JOHNSON AL-ANABI RACING DEBUTS WITH TEST SESSION IN FLORIDA; Rookie Driver from UAE will Attempt A-Fuel Dragster License

BROWNSBURG, Ind. -- Alan Johnson Al-Anabi Racing, a new two-car NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing team, will debut this weekend at Palm Beach International Raceway in West Palm Beach, Fla. in a three-day test session starting tomorrow, it was announced today.

The team will start the test session with Larry Dixon's Top Fuel team on Friday. Del Worsham's Funny Car will begin testing on Saturday, and both cars will be on the track Sunday, Jan. 18. It is a closed test session, with only invited teams permitted on the grounds. Among the invited teams are Don Schumacher Racing, team owner Alan Johnson's former team, Tim Wilkerson Racing and Kallita Racing. Both Alan Johnson Al-Anabi Racing entries will also test in Phoenix next weekend.

Khalid Al Balooshi, the 2008 United Arab Emerites Drag Race Champion, will use the three-day test session to get his A-Fuel dragster license. Al Balooshi will train with Tom Conway, a former alcohol dragster champion who owns an A-Fuel dragster. Al Balooshi won the 2008 UAE championship driving in the Pro-Mod category; his ultimate goal is to obtain his Top Fuel License in the future.
