FRAM Top Fuel Dragster Driver Faces Doug Herbert Sunday

KENT, Wash., July 21, 2007 -- Rain washed out three of four scheduled qualifying sessions, but Cory McClenathan used his only run to qualify 11th for the Schuck's Auto Supply Nationals at Pacific Raceways. McClenathan drove the Scott Griffin Motorsports FRAM Top Fuel dragster to a time of 4.728 seconds at 291.38 mph early Saturday afternoon.

McClenathan had hoped to improve on that run later in the day, but while the Top Fuel competitors were in the staging lanes, the skies opened up again, forcing NHRA officials to cancel the remainder of qualifying.

"We would've liked to have had a second run," McClenathan said, "but it's nice to be in the show. Now we need to go some rounds. If we can win a couple of rounds, I'll be a happy camper."

McClenathan will meet Doug Herbert (No. 6, 4.639 at 313.07 mph) on Sunday.
