Cory Mac Qualifies Ninth at Rain-troubled Reading Race
FRAM Boost Dragster Runs 4.550 Seconds

READING, Pa., Sept. 30, 2006 -- Back-to-back runs in the 4.50s -- including a best of 4.550 seconds -- put Cory McClenathan into the No. 9 position for Sunday's rain-delayed Toyo Tires Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway.

McClenathan races No. 8 J.R. Todd (4.549 at 324.98 mph) in the first round. The pairing has POWERade Series points significance. McClenathan and the Carrier Boyz Racing FRAM Boost dragster are 10th in points with 825 and Todd is 12th at 776.

We only got one run Saturday because of rain," said McClenathan. "We'll take ninth place. I'm excited to see if we can beat J.R. We'll be trying our best. I think Wes (Cerny, crew chief) and Tony (Shortall, assistant crew chief) did a good job with the car today. We lost one run due to rain, but I think we were consistent on the last two runs we made."
