Energetic NHRA Top Fueler Dave Grubnic and a familiar friend look to start 2007 season with a win

Pomona, Calif., (Feb. 6, 2007) -- Native Australian Dave Grubnic, driver of the black and electric blue Zantrex-3 Top Fuel dragster, is ready to race in some familiar colors again this weekend, Feb. 8-11, at the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series 2007 season-opener, the CARQUEST Auto Parts NHRA Winternationals, at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in Pomona, Calif.

Zantrex-3 returns in 2007 as the primary sponsor on Grubnic's 8,000-horsepower, nitro-fueled race car after also adorning the 330-mph dragster in Grubnic's 2005 NHRA campaign. Grubnic is thrilled to welcome back his friends from Zantrex-3 and looks to the upcoming season with high hopes of giving them and drag racing fans a lot to cheer about.

"Our car is all set and I'm really excited about this year," Grubnic said. "I have some very fond memories with Zantrex-3 on board with us, like the first time we debuted the car and paint scheme in 2004 at the fall race in Las Vegas. We had a lot of the VIPs from the company there with us, and we won the Budweiser Shootout for them. It was awesome. Zantrex-3 was on board when we won our first national event too, so I can't wait to get back out there in my blue blazer.

"I really think we're going to see some great runs from our car and all the other teams this year. I think fans are in for a real treat at the drag strips in 2007."
