Hillary Will looks for breakthrough event at Atlanta Dragway

COMMERCE, Ga. (May 4, 2006) -- With a quarter of the 2006 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series complete, the rookie driver of the KB Racing LLC-owned, Kalitta Motorsports-managed Top Fuel dragster Hillary Will has qualified at all six races.

This weekend, the Northern California native, who now lives in Ypsilanti, Mich., looks to 26th annual NHRA Summit Racing Equipment Southern Nationals presented by Pontiac for a breakthrough race.

"I'm confident that we can go rounds on Sunday in Atlanta," said Will, who has qualified in the top half of the field at four of the six races, most recently No. 2 at last weekend's Bristol event. "I am hungrier than ever to win, and I'm determined to do so, especially since we've proven that we have qualified well and have a team and a race car that is capable of winning."

Entering this weekend's race at Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Ga., Will is No. 12 in the NHRA POWERade Top Fuel point standings with 243 points, just 16 points out of the top ten.

At Atlanta Dragway, qualifying for Will and her KB Racing Top Fuel dragster begins with two nitro fuel sessions on Friday, May 5, scheduled for 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. and concludes with two additional nitro fuel sessions on Saturday, May 6, at 12:30 and 3:30 p.m. Will begins her quest for the Summit Racing Equipment Southern Nationals presented by Pontiac Top Fuel title on Sunday, May 7, with eliminations for all classes beginning at 11 a.m. All times are local Atlanta time (ET) and subject to change at anytime.
