Dave Grubnic and the Zantrex-3 team seeking to finish 2007 season with a win in Pomona Finals

POMONA, Calif., (Oct. 31, 2007) -- This weekend, Nov. 1-4, at the Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals, this season's final event of the 2007 POWERade Drag Racing Series at historic Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in Pomona, Calif., native Australian Dave Grubnic, driver of the 330-mph, black and electric blue-flamed Zantrex-3 Top Fuel dragster, is looking to this weekend's last hoorah on the quarter-mile as his final opportunity to get at least one event win in each of the past three seasons.

"We've had an up and down year, but to end with a win would be a fantastic lift going into the off-season," Grubnic, a 45-year old resident of Ennis, Mont., said. "Our Zantrex-3 team has just been great all year through all of our good times and bad. Those guys deserve to go to the winner's circle in Pomona, and I hope I can do my part to get us all there."
