Kalitta ready to keep rocking in Memphis.

Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 18, 2002 - Doug Kalitta and the Mac Tools Top Fuel dragster team finally hit their stride in a victory march to take their first win of 2002 just a few days ago in Reading, Penn. Now, they want to maintain their winning rhythm in Memphis, Tenn., as the O'Reilly Mid-South Nationals rocks and rolls into Memphis Motorsports Park, Sept. 19-22.

Team Kalitta's performances in Memphis in the last three years give them even more confidence heading into action this weekend. Kalitta and the Mac Tools dragster team have qualified in the top half of the field and, they have had two consecutive semi-final round finishes in their last three trips to the Bluff City.

"I always look forward to racing in Memphis," said Kalitta. "The fans there are always great. We are really looking forward to maintaining the momentum we started in Reading. Hopefully we can leave Memphis with a few barbecue stains on our shirts and another Wally (trophy)."

"The Mac Tools team has set our goal to finish at least third in NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series championship points. After Reading, we know how dominant our racecar can be on race day. I am sure our Top Fuel competitors took notice of us too. We think we have a great shot at finishing in the top three now."

After 18 of 23 National Events, Doug is 6th in NHRA POWERade Top Fuel Championship points.
