ROCKSTAR Toyota Funny Car Posts Sixth-quickest Time

CLERMONT, Ind., Aug. 31, 2007 -- The test session Jerry Toliver and the ROCKSTAR Toyota Solara recently put in paid off handsomely Friday in the Funny Car team's first qualifying run for Monday's 53rd annual Mac Tools U.S. Nationals at O'Reilly Raceway Park.

Toliver was very happy with a 4.797-second, 320.81-mph run that left him sixth after the first of five runs.

"That was a great way to start it, and the U.S. Nationals is a great place to turn around our performance," said Toliver. "Dale (Armstrong) and the crew are onto something. The gremlins bit us earlier, but I think we have a lot of performance left in our car."
