Dave Grubnic and the Zantrex-3 team searching for symmetry in Dallas

ENNIS, Tex., (Sept. 19, 2007) -- At this weekend's, Sept. 20-23, annual running of the O'Reilly NHRA Fall Nationals at the Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Tex., just a few miles south of Dallas, native Australian Dave Grubnic, driver of the black and electric blue-flamed Zantrex-3 Top Fuel dragster, is looking to put his dragster on the winning side of a very fine line and the finish line.

"Man, we are just right there," Grubnic, a 45-year old resident of Ennis, Mont., said. "Our Zantrex-3 car has been making steady progress in the past several races in both performance and consistency. Now, we just need to get the two to come together at the same time. That's always the tricky part about drag racing.

"The Texas Motorplex is an awesome facility with a just-as-impressive racing surface, so if we get everything in the puzzle to fit this weekend, it could be a big weekend for our team."
