First-round Setback for Toliver at Richmond

RICHMOND, Va., Oct. 7, 2007 -- Jerry Toliver was perplexed following an opening-round loss Sunday in the Torco Racing Fuels Nationals at Virginia Motorsports Park. A clutch problem caused the tires to smoke soon after he hit the throttle.

The result enabled Gary Densham to  cruise to the win in 5.234 seconds,
279.21 mph.   Toliver's  ROCKSTAR/AutoZone Toyota Solara coasted across in 11.637
seconds, 78.33  mph.
"It was extremely disappointing because we had consistent qualifying  runs
and felt we could win some rounds," said Toliver.  "We believe we  could have
beaten his 5.23, but. obviously, we won't know.  We hadn't  smoked the tires
once during the weekend.  We can't give up laps like  that."
