Dave Grubnic and the Zantrex-3 team try to keep top ten hopes alive in Memphis

MILLINGTON, Tenn., (Sept. 11, 2007) -- This weekend, Sept. 14-16, at the 20th annual O'Reilly Mid-South Nationals at Memphis Motorsports Park in Millington, Tenn., just a few miles north of Memphis, native Australian Dave Grubnic, driver of the black and blue Zantrex-3 Top Fuel dragster who is currently in 10th place in Top Fuel points in the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series, is hoping to move up a notch on the points pole.

"We want to make sure we get a top ten finish this year," Grubnic, a 45-year old resident of Ennis, Mont., said. "With the new points system, 9th is the best we can do now, and that's our goal. Obviously we want to go win races, but good solid performances will keep us in the top ten and hopefully up to 9th. A win in Memphis would certainly make that goal much easier."
