McClenathan Meets Whit Bazemore in First Round

BAYTOWN, Texas, March 31, 2007 -- Cory McClenathan and the Carrier Boyz Racing Top Fuel team waited out a seven-hour rain delay Saturday during qualifying for Sunday's O'Reilly Spring Nationals at Houston Raceway Park, only to have more rain arrive and put a damper on any runs.

McClenathan was 16th (4.689 seconds at 278.86 mph) going into the day and now he'll square off against top qualifier Whit Bazemore (4.514 at 326.87) in Sunday's opening round.

"I'd rather not be 16th because we know we have a pretty good hot rod," said the veteran driver. "The good news is we are in the starting line-up. One thing we won't know is how much power the track will hold."

McClenathan will be attempting to move up from 10th place in POWERade Series points.
