Red light ends Will's run at Route 66

JOLIET, Ill. (June 11, 2006) -- A foul start ended the day for Hillary Will, driver of the KB Racing LLC-owned, Kalitta Motorsports-managed Top Fuel dragster, against J.R. Todd in the opening round of eliminations for the NHRA CARQUEST Auto Parts Nationals.

Will left 23 thousandths of a second too soon and the win light automatically turned on for Todd. For the record Will ran an elapsed time of 4.543 seconds at 311.49 mph. Todd tripped the finish line light in 4.550 seconds.

"You've got to experience growing pains to grow," said Will of her close encounter with the Christmas tree. "I feel bad for the team. I was ready. I knew we had a good car today. I tried to make a good leave. My goal is to always cut a good light. I guess I was overly ready."
