ROCKSTAR Energy Drink Toyota Driver Could Use Little Good Fortune, too

READING, Pa., August 19, 2007 -- Jerry Toliver was frazzled. Success with his ROCKSTAR Energy Drink Toyota Solara appears to be only a step or two away from being in sync.

His 4.974-second elapsed time wasn't quick enough to put him into the starting lineup for Sunday's Toyo Tires Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway, so Toliver decided to take the team to Indianapolis for two days of testing at O'Reilly Motorsports Park, site of the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals, Aug. 31-Sept. 3.

"We are in a fine-tuning process," he said, "and we are still trying to control our horsepower. And, like I've said, that is a lot better than looking for power, but, at the same time, I am very disappointed. We need to start getting results.

"We believe we are very close to getting everything worked out."
