HERBERT TAKES NO. 6 POSITION

Bristol, Tenn. (July 7, 2007) Doug Herbert drove the Snap-on Tools Top Fuel dragster to the No. 6 position after four rounds of qualifying action at the O'Reilly Thunder Valley Nationals in Bristol, Tenn.

Herbert's best pass of the weekend came on Friday evening, with Herbert piloting the Snap-on Tools rail to a 4.61 second pass at 318 mph.

"We used Saturday's qualifying session to make some changes and try some new things," said Herbert. "Some of them worked, and some of them didn't. The important thing is we learned from both passes, and we'll be ready for round one on Sunday.

"We are close to home, so going rounds tomorrow in front of all our friends and family will be great. Another one of the reasons we love coming to Bristol is because we won here every year from 1992 through 1997, and we want to get that streak going again. We're ready to start packing the trophies over the mountains and back home to North Carolina."

Herbert will face Cory McClenathen in the opening round of eliminations.
