Torco Racing Fuels Chevy Runs 6.668 Seconds

ENNIS, Sept. 21, 2007 -- Dave Connolly and Greg Anderson, the two pacesetters in NHRA's Countdown to the Pro Stock championship, were not far apart Friday night following the first day of qualifying for Sunday's O'Reilly Fall Nationals at the Texas Motorplex

Connolly made the most of the night run, coming in with a 6.668-second time at 205.72 mph and Anderson followed with a the same e.t., 6.668 seconds, but his speed of 206.92 mph gave him the provisional No. 1 top spot. Two more qualifying runs are slated Saturday.

"We made nice looking runs," said Connolly, driver of Evan Knoll's Torco Racing Fuels Chevy Cobalt for Victor Cagnazzi Racing. He'd run 6.730 seconds in the opening run. Elapsed times dropped dramatically with the cooler night temperatures.

"Weather conditions will be the same Saturday (hot and humid) and we should be able to stay in the top few cars."
