Dave Connolly Resumes Points Battle at Texas Motorplex

There wasn't much decided in Dave Connolly's quest to overhaul NHRA Pro Stock point leaders Jason Line and Greg Anderson last weekend due to a washout at Reading, Pa. So Connolly and the SKULL Gear Chevy Cobalt team will resume competition at the Texas Motorplex near Dallas, Sept. 22-24.

"It was disappointing that we didn't get to race at Reading, but there's not much we can do about that," said Connolly, who is third in POWERade Series points with 1,166. "We won't have to do much to the car. I think we'll be in pretty good shape.

"You never know what to expect when we go to Dallas. If it's hot, the track isn't very good, but if it's cool, it will be fast. We'd obviously prefer cooler weather, but we'll see what happens. We'd like to put good runs together there."

Line is the series leader with 1,301 points and Anderson is second at 1,242.

Postponing the Toyo Tires Nationals at Reading until Sept. 29-Oct. 1 means the team now will have three races in a row -- Dallas, Reading and Richmond, Va. (Oct. 6-8) -- as the 2006 season draws to a close. The final two stops are in Las Vegas (Oct. 27-29) and Pomona, Calif. (Nov. 9-12).
