Palmer has gift for lucky fans

Brainerd, Minn., (August 10, 2006)- Scott Palmer is looking to make a fan's day very exciting. Palmer and his Grand Crown Resorts Top Fuel dragster return to competition this weekend for the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway, bringing with them a gift from his sponsor. Grand Crown Vacation Travel will be giving away a trip for an all-expenses paid weekend to a drag race and the opportunity to serve as a crew member for that race on Palmer's dragster.

"Grand Crown Vacation Travel is going to make someone very happy," said an excited Palmer. "We are asking fans to sign-up at their local O'Reilly Auto Parts store or visit ScottPalmerRacing.com and fill out a form to enter. We will be selecting the winning entry next week at the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Nationals in Memphis, Tenn. It really is wonderful when we can treat a fan to unique inside perspective of what it takes to run a 7,000 horsepower Top Fueler."

Palmer and crew chose to skip the past few races on the NHRA POWERade tour in order to organize and test. Palmer made some changes to his fuel system and installed a setback blower. The improvements were immediately visible as the Grand Crown Resorts dragster tested in Tulsa and put down the best 60' and 330' times that they have run all year." We changed lots of stuff, we wanted to see what it would do when we hit the gas," said Palmer with a big smile on his face. We were certainly pleased. We have been struggling this year with little stupid stuff. Hopefully that's behind us now. We want to race."
