Torco Racing Fuels Cobalt Runs 6.750-second Time

BRAINERD, Minn., Aug. 11, 2007 -- Good conditions on an otherwise hot, humid and sometimes wet Brainerd International Raceway enabled Dave Connolly to drive Evan Knoll's yellow Torco Racing Fuels Chevy Cobalt into the No. 2 qualifying spot for Sunday's Lucas Oil Nationals.

Connolly time was 6.750 seconds 203.80 mph and puts him against former NBA player Tom Hammonds (No. 15, 6.784 at 2-03.49 mph) in the first round of eliminations.

Crew chief Tommy Utt fine tuned the new motor Connolly ran on his 6.775-second run on Friday night and the car responded.

Connolly will be seeking his second straight Pro Stock win at Brainerd. The track is the site of his first NHRA Pro Stock victory in 2004.
