Craig Treble takes top spot in Vegas qualifying.

Las Vegas -- Saturday Pit Note: For the second time this season, Craig Treble has put his Matco Tools / Nitro Fish Suzuki in the No 1 spot on the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock Bike Qualifying ladder.

Treble led all qualifiers at the Third annual AC Delco Las Vegas NHRA Nationals, running a 7.246 / 182.82 MPH in the Saturday morning session, then followed with another strong pass of 7.261 / 185.72 MPH in the final session Saturday afternoon.

"Our second pass actually had a better 60 foot time, and I thought we were going to run even faster on that that pass. Instead I ended up riding it a bit more than I wanted to and that killed a bit of ET on that run. We ran pretty good today and I feel great about going into eliminations tomorrow morning." Explained Treble.

"I want to thank Matt Hines for loaning his Vance & Hines bike to our team, obviously it's a great piece and works extremely well, I'm feel real comfortable on the bike," Said Craig. "If we can get one mile of good runs out of this Matco Tools / Nitro Fish bike tomorrow, we'll have no problem celebrating here in Vegas tomorrow night."
