Toliver Squares Off against Bernstein in First Round

POMONA, Calif., November 3, 2007 -- An exuberant Jerry Toliver celebrated his 4.820-second qualifying run Saturday afternoon after he put his ROCKSTAR Energy Drink/AutoZone Toyota Solara solidly into the starting lineup at No. 11 for Sunday's Auto Club Finals.

"It was a relief," he said.  "This was the second race in a row I watched
as we got bumped out of the lineup and we bumped back in.  Our team did
not fold.  I was happy we did it at Pomona, our home track and in front
of our hometown fans.  I can't wait until Sunday."

Toliver's 4.820-second elapsed time at a fast 326.24 mph puts him opposite Kenny Bernstein in Sunday's opening round. Bernstein (No. 6, 4.804 at 322.190 mph) in the first round.
