LAMB LEADS LUCAS OIL SERIES RACERS INTO FINALS AT INFINEON RACEWAY

GLENDORA, Calif. (July 27, 2009) -- NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series competitor Justin Lamb won his third national event of the season this weekend at the Fram Autolite NHRA Nationals at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif. Lamb, a resident of Henderson, Nev., scored the win in Super Comp and was also a finalist in Super Stock, giving him five final round appearances at national events and three wins in three classes this year.

In Super Comp, Lamb squared off against Mike Hiatt, Henderson, Nev., and took the win after he had already fallen in the Super Stock final to veteran racer Mark Faul of Tacoma, Wash. Lamb won Super Gas at the season opening Kragen O'Reilly NHRA Winternationals and took the win in Super Stock two weeks ago at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals. This weekend's win gives him five career national event wins.

In Stock Eliminator, Larry Gilley, Hilmar, Calif., earned his first national event win, wheeling his '69 Dart to the winner's circle over six-time division champ Jody Lang of Puyallup, Wash., who was behind the wheel of his '69 Chevelle. Valinda, Calif., resident Val Torres earned his third national event title when he knocked off Michael Miller, Santa Fe, N.M., in the final.
