McClenathan Joins Other NHRA Drivers In Special Gary Scelzi All-Star Challenge

There's a new  challenge awaiting Cory McClenathan when he joins fellow NHRA
drivers Ron Capps,  J.R. Todd, Morgan Lucas and Del Worsham in the Gary Scelzi
& Friends  All-Star Challenge Saturday night, June 16, at Plaza Park Raceway
in Visalia,  Calif.
It's a fund-raiser for the one-fifth-mile clay oval where  Scelzi's
10-year-old son Dominic regularly competes in a Restricted 600cc  Mini-Sprint.  Scelzi
and his cohorts will be driving 600cc  Mini-Sprints.

"This should be a lot of fun but, that said, all the guys who are racing are as competitive as I am," said McClenathan, driver of the FRAM Boost Top Fuel dragster, who flew in from Indianapolis for the special function. "We all like to drive different kinds of race cars and I'll just be adding another new one to my list.

"Scelzi, Capps and I have  been racing karts against each other every March
at Infineon Raceway and we  always give it our best shot there, so this will be
no different.  It is  also for a good cause."
Scelzi also plans to give a special  donation to D.R.A.W., the Drag Racing
Association of Women.  D.R.A.W.  provides assistance to injured drag racers.
