ANTRON BROWN QUALIFIES NINTH FRIDAY AT BRAINERD

BRAINERD, Minn. (Aug. 13, 2010) - Antron Brown drove his Don Schumacher-owned Matco Tools/U.S. Army dragster to the provisional No. 9 qualifying position Friday evening at Brainerd International Raceway.

Brown, who enters the 17th race on the 2010 NHRA schedule ranked fifth in the Top Fuel standings, had just one try at the Brainerd track on Friday following afternoon rain showers that canceled one of the two scheduled qualifying sessions. Brown's Matco Tools/U.S. Army car lost traction and slowed to a lap of 5.106 seconds at 140.23 mph in the right lane at the 29th annual Brainerd race. Brown qualified sixth at B.I.R. last August at 3.947-seconds. Brandon Bernstein was first on Friday at 3.847-seconds.

"We were hoping to get in two runs today, but that rain wouldn't let it happen and there are no lights at Brainerd," Brown said. "We just missed it and it didn't get down the track. It's going to cool off on Saturday and I know the Matco Tools boys here at DSR will get it right and we'll make two good runs on Saturday."
