Connolly Winds Up 10th as Rain Washes Out Qualifying at Houston

BAYTOWN, Texas, March 31, 2007 -- Bravo! Brands Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BRVO): A severe thunderstorm Saturday and all day rain prevented Dave Connolly and the TORCO Slammers Ultimate Milk Chevrolet Cobalt Pro Stock team from making two qualifying runs for Sunday's O'Reilly Spring Nationals at Houston Raceway Park.

Connolly had hoped to get the track time because a new motor replaced the one that was hurt on Friday's last qualifying run and he wanted to improve on his No. 10 position (6.699 seconds at 205.85 mph). That puts him against V. Gaines in the first round.

"My new motor is the same one that was in (teammate) Jeg's (Coughlin) Slammers Ultimate Milk car in Gainesville," Connolly said. "And he ran well there. I feel pretty confident. We have a good setup. Now we just want to go out and run good in eliminations."
