INDIANAPOLIS, (Aug. 26, 2008) -- Hillary Will, driver of the 8,000-horsepower KB Racing, LLC Top Fuel dragster, is anxious to get her nitro-fueled racing machine on the track this weekend, Aug. 27-Sept. 1, for the annual running of the historic Mac Tools U.S. Nationals at O'Reilly Raceway Park at Indianapolis, but the rising Top Fuel star is quick to point out that her eagerness to compete in the world's most prestigious drag racing event should not be confused with nervousness.

"I'm more relaxed than I've ever been going into Indy," Will, a 28-year old native of Fortuna, Calif., said. "Our car has been running great all season and my team is the best out there, so there's definitely a sense of a confident calm in me and my team right now, but we're still going to Indy to try to run better than we have all year. Every team pushes themselves harder at Indy."

Will will have even more "backbone" in her and her team's efforts in Indy. Spinal technology company, K2M, Inc., a longtime supporter and associate sponsor of Kalitta Motorsports, along with FOCOS (Foundation of Orthopedics and Complex Spine) and CURE International will share special decal signage on Will's KB Racing, LLC charge throughout the racing action at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals.

Will is currently in 7th place in POWERade championship points and has secured a position in the 2008 Countdown to the Championship.

Will continued, "It does take quite a bit of the burden off of this race to know that we have locked ourselves into the Countdown. We missed it last year and that was a big letdown, so we're very happy to be able to make a run at the championship this season. It's going to be exciting for us, our fans, and everyone involved, but first things first -- Winning in Indy."
