FRAM Dragster Posts 4.585-second Time

Gainesville, Fla., March 16, 2007 -- Cory McClenathan was pleasantly surprised Friday afternoon following his 4.585-second, 330.07-mph qualifying run for Sunday's ACDelco Gatornationals at Gainesville Raceway. The effort from the Carrier Boyz/Scott Griffin Racing Top Fuel dragster put him in third place with two more runs on tap Saturday.

"The speed was a surprise," he said. "We were the only car to run over 330. Wes (Cerny, team crew chief) and Tony (Shortall, assistant crew chief) made a lot of changes to the car over the last two weeks so to see it go down the track like that was very satisfying. We're really happy. Wes has the horsepower and he's doing what he needs to do to get it down the track.

"Another positive point is the engine looked good after the last run. We're looking forward to our two runs tomorrow because weather forecasts say it is going to be cooler . . . and we should be able to run quicker."
