McClenathan Pedals Throttle, Qualifies Eighth at Richmond

RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 5, 2007 -- Cory McClenathan didn't want to give the throttle a quick pedal, but he did and the FRAM Top Fuel dragster responded, running 4.802 seconds at 321.96 mph and placing eighth Friday as qualifying began for Sunday's Torco Racing Fuels Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park.

"The car recovered well and we got in the show," McClenathan said. "Honeywell is based in this area and we want to do well. We missed one run (due to an afternoon rain storm), but things worked out okay.

"We'll see what happens Saturday. The track should be in good shape, too."

Two more qualifying runs Saturday will set the field for eliminations.
