FRAM Top Fuel Driver Races Rod Fuller in Opening Round

MEMPHIS, Sept. 15, 2006 -- Cory McClenathan enjoyed another solid qualifying effort in his fourth race as the FRAM Top Fuel team owner and it was good enough to place him ninth for Sunday's O'Reilly Mid-South Nationals at Memphis Motorsports Park.

His Friday night time of 4.585 seconds at 321.41 mph was his best, and he added a 4.592 in Saturday's final attempt. He and Rod Fuller (No. 8, 4.583 at 321.81) open competition in Sunday's first round.

"At least we are going down the track," said a smiling McClenathan. "It is tough being the first pair down the track. The car was trying to run well on our last run. We were running 279 mph at mid-track before the car spun the tires and we dropped a cylinder.

"We'd like to go some rounds on Sunday."
