Del Worsham, Toyota Solara Funny Car:

* Del Worsham is in fifth place in the NHRA Full Throttle Funny Car point standings; he trails fourth place by two points and third place by 120 points.

* Worsham has two wins this season; he visited victory circle at St. Louis and Bristol. Worsham was the No. 12 qualifier at Norwalk, Ohio and lost to Ashley Force Hood in the first round of eliminations.

* Last year in Denver, Worsham was the No. 9 qualifier and lost to Robert Hight in the first round of eliminations. Worsham won at Bandimere Speedway in 2002.

* Worsham has 24 wins in his Funny Car career; he is seventh on the NHRA's all-time Funny Car wins list trailing sixth place by just two wins.

Worsham prior to Denver:

"We won at Denver in 2002, and it was awesome to win there because of the great job the Bandimere family does. I always look forward to going to Denver because of them. We've been working on our warm-weather tune up since May, and we're not quite there yet. Our problem is that we're not qualifying well enough. If you qualify better and get into the top half of the field, you don't have such a tough first-round match up. So we just have to get our weekends started little bit better."
