LAS VEGAS, (April 9, 2008) -- At this weekend's, April 10-13, annual running of the SummitRacing.com NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway just north of the Las Vegas city limits, Hillary Will, driver of the KB Racing, LLC Top Fuel dragster and the fastest female in the history of NHRA drag racing (334.65 mph), is looking forward to seeing the glow of the bright lights away from that other glitzy "strip".

"The only lights I want to see in Las Vegas are win lights," Will, a 28-year old native of Fortuna, Calif., said. "Sure, there are so many things to see when we race in Vegas. It's a fun time and there's always something to do, but my concentration is certainly on the race car and the race.

"Vegas is like an adopted home track for our KB Racing, LLC team. Our team owners, Ken and Judy Black and Ken Black, Jr., all call Las Vegas home. We always want to go out and win, but it would be a little more special if we could get our dragster in the winner's circle for the first time at The Strip for them."

Will is currently in 8th place in 2008 POWERade Top Fuel championship points.
