HERBERT TAKES NO. 9 POSITION IN ENGLISHTOWN

Englishtown, N.J. (June 23, 2007) After four rounds of qualifying at the ProCare Rx NHRA SuperNationals in Englishtown, N.J., Doug Herbert and the Snap-on Tools Top Fuel team will race on Sunday from the No. 9 position.

Herbert's strongest pass of the weekend came during Friday's second qualifying session. With header flames bright under the twilight sky, Herbert flew through the quarter-mile with a stout 4.55 second pass at 318 mph.

"The car feels good," said Herbert. "We've learned a lot in the past few weeks, and we're doing a better job of reading the track. We are improving with every pass we make.

"The whole Snap-on team is hungry for a win, and we're ready to make it happen. We plan on going four rounds tomorrow and celebrating in winner's circle."

Herbert will line up beside Melanie Troxel in first round action.
