McClenathan Puts FRAM Boost Dragster in 7th Position

READING, Pa., Sept. 29, 2006 -- Cory McClenathan and the Carrier Boyz FRAM Boost Top Fuel team assured themselves of a starting position Friday for Sunday's rain-delayed Toyo Tires Nationals, by posting an elapsed time of 4.550 seconds at 317.69 mph, to grab seventh place.

"The car was trying to run real good and was on a good pass at half-track, but the motor started going sour and we slowed down some," said McClenathan. "We were happy that we were able to come out and get a good time and rebound from last week's race.

"Wes (Cerny, crew chief) and Tony (Shortall, assistant crew chief) did a good job getting the car down the track. They believe we will pick up the pace Saturday and run in the low 4.50s. They will make the necessary changes and get things figured out. We're looking forward to another fast track tomorrow."

The team has two more qualifying runs that will set the field for Sunday's eliminations.
