Kalitta equipped with tools to win in Reading.

Adversity affects one person differently than the next. Just as one person may find solace in solitude as a means of therapy, another person may seek comfort with others that share a similar interest.

As Americans reflect on and heal from the events of last September, NHRA Drag Racing fans will congregate, as they did almost one year ago, in Reading, Penn., to revel in freedom and celebrate the sights, sounds and speeds of the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway, Sept. 12-15.

Doug Kalitta and the Mac Tools/Kalitta Motorsports Top Fuel dragster team capitalized on near-perfect atmospheric conditions in the Quaker State last year to post a career-best elapsed time of 4.498 seconds. Kalitta looks forward to visiting Reading this weekend for the opportunity of more record-setting performances and to interact with fans, family, and friends.

"I have heard that conditions are favorable for great racing this year, too," said Kalitta. "Team Kalitta knows the potential of our Mac Tools dragster. If the weather cooperates, we should see some incredible runs."

"Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in competition and neglect the most important things in life. I feel very fortunate to be able to go racing with my friends and have my family close to me when I do. Those are the things that really matter. We are all ready for a fast and fun weekend."
