Finished 11th at O'Reilly Raceway Park in 2005, was defeated by Rickie Smith in the first round.

Enters this weekend's event ranked 13th in the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock Series points race.

PRE-EVENT QUOTE...

Erica Enders On her second career U.S. Nationals as a professional:

"Indy is a lot of fun, and it's a really long race since it is spread out over four days. You really have to focus."

"I'm excited to participate there as a member of Don Schumacher Racing and under the Mopar umbrella. It's going to be really neat to see all of their fans that come out for the U.S. Nationals."

On Performance:

"Goals are always high. We've been struggling a little bit, but the team has been testing in Indy this week, and we seem to have some of our problems solved."

"They have picked up three-mph and a couple hundredths (of a second) in the testing that they have done the past couple days. That is huge in Pro Stock, with how competitive this class is. It's very exciting, and it gives us a lot of confidence heading into the race."
