RACE DAY ENDS EARLY FOR HERBERT AND SNAP-ON TOOLS TEAM

Brainerd, Minn. (August 12, 2007) The 26th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals came to an early end for Doug Herbert and the Snap-on Tools Top Fuel team.

After qualifying for a tough field in the No. 15 position, Herbert lined up against Brandon Bernstein in the first round of qualifying action. Herbert was first off the line with a quick reaction time (.062 of a second to Bernstein's .109), but the Snap-on Tools dragster smoked the tires and lost traction. Bernstein went on to take the win light.

"We're frustrated," said Herbert. "This definitely isn't what we wanted this weekend. We will pack up, head to Reading and work hard to get better results."
