"To me, Phoenix is the promise land. The last three times I've raced there we've won, so we have a great streak going on. Arizona is like a second home. We did really good in testing and we have a good combination for that race track. I'm very excited going into Phoenix."

"Based on Pomona, we feel like we have a really good car. We just need to make more runs to prove that. We want to qualify better and we were trying to do that in the fourth session (at Pomona) and we dropped a cylinder because the same setup ran low E.T. of the meet the next morning. Also the fact that we tested well at Phoenix allows us to be optimistic."

Fuller clocked the quickest pass of 2008 preseason testing on Jan. 29 with a run of 4.468 seconds at 331.36 mph at Firebird International Raceway.

Fuller has qualified for 63 consecutive NHRA Top Fuel events. He hasn't missed the cut since driving Top Fuel part time in 1996 (Houston). It is the second longest streak in Top Fuel (Tony Schumacher).

Fuller claimed the CSK Nationals Super Gas title in 2004 when he defeated Glen Smith in the final round. He has 13 career NHRA sportsmen victories in the Super Gas and Super Comp categories. Fuller has won 15 consecutive rounds of competition at F.I.R.
