Cory Mac Wins First Round; Rain Postpones Action to Monday
FRAM Dragster Posts Second-best Run of Round

READING, Pa., August 19, 2007 -- Cory McClenathan parlayed a near-perfect reaction time with the round's second-quickest elapsed time and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Toyo Tires Nationals Sunday at Maple Grove Raceway.

The second round, however, will not be run until Monday because a steady rain forced NHRA officials to postpone competition until Tuesday morning.

McClenathan's .011-second reaction (.000 is perfect) gave him a large lead even before his 4.526-second elapsed time lit the win light against Larry Dixon. Dixon had to pedal the throttle and was timed in 4.702 seconds at 319.07 mph.

"That light was just a very good guess," said McClenathan. "I would like to take this opportunity to say I was leaving then either way. The timing was good. I feel good our win and the elapsed time."

He races Doug Herbert in the quarterfinals.
