Vandergriff out early in St. Louis

MADISON, Ill. (June 25, 2006) - Sunday's elimination's of the O'Reilly NHRA Midwest NHRA Nationals at Gateway International Raceway were run under a beautiful blue sky laden with white puffy clouds. Quite a contrast to the past few years of high heat and humidity. Although it appeared to be a picture perfect day, the UPS Top Fuel team ended up just short of defeating J.R. Todd in the opening round. Bob Vandergriff Jr. lost by the smallest of margins when he put down a 4.860 second blast which proved to be not enough for Todd's holeshot victory of 4.863 seconds.

After a two weekend break back at their Alpharetta, GA., shop the UPS dragster will do battle at the Mopar Mile-High Nationals at Bandimere Speedway outside Denver, Colorado.

Vandergriff leaves St. Louis in 13th position in the NHRA POWERade points standings.
