Qualifying high in field on Will's agenda at Richmond

PETERSBURG, Va. (October 3, 2007) -- Hillary Will, driver of the KB Racing LLC-owned, Kalitta Motorsports-managed Top Fuel dragster, has a dual goal for the second annual NHRA Torco Racing Fuels Nationals this weekend.

Her first goal is to qualify high in the field. This is important because the event this weekend at Richmond is the final event that the Top Fuel drivers can earn points for the Top Fuel Technicoat Shootout. The top eight point earner will advance to the Technicoat Shootout (Oct. 27), a special race-within-a- race, at the ACDelco Las Vegas Nationals (Oct. 25-28) at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Currently, Will is tied for the eighth and final position in the Shootout with 2,440 points. Points are earned as follows: the No. 1 qualifier earns 175 points, No. 2 165 points, No. 3 155 points, and No. 4 145 points. The No. 5 qualifier earns 140 points and each subsequent position decreases by five points per position, with the No. 16 qualifier earning 85 points.

To make the eight-car field for the Top Fuel Technicoat Shootout would be especially gratifying to Will and her KB Racing team as Technicoat Companies, with locations in Las Vegas and Southern California, specializing in high tech performance coatings, wearing surfaces for pedestrian traffic and vehicular traffic, new and existing roofs, as well as application of below grade wall waterproofing designed to prohibit water intrusion in lower levels, is an associate sponsor of Will's KB Racing LLC-owned, Kalitta Motorsports-managed Top Fuel dragster.

Her other goal is to win here. Will begins her quest for the NHRA Torco Racing Fuels Nationals Top Fuel event title when Top Fuel qualifying gets underway at Virginia Motorsports Park in Petersburg, Va., a short drive from Richmond, on Friday.
