RaceRedi Motorsports Dodge Posts 6.612-second Time

SEATTLE, July 18, 2008 -- Justin Humphreys had mixed feelings Friday evening after the first two qualifying runs for Sunday's Schuck's Auto Parts Nationals at Pacific Raceways. He was relieved to be 10th overall with a 6.612-second time at 208.88 mph, but bummed because he lost a good opportunity to improve it.

"The car rolled the beams," he said of the 6.621-second time, "so the time could've been better. The car started rolling through the beams when I pushed the (clutch) pedal to the mat. Tomorrow's conditions should be good. We'll be trying to get a spot in the top half of the field."

Humphreys is battling for a berth in NHRA's Countdown to 1 title chase. He's 12th in points and only 10 drivers advance. Only four more races remain after this stop.
