SONOMA, Calif. (August 4, 2001) - Qualifying for the Fram Autolite Nationals at Sears Point Raceway concluded today with Jerry Toliver, driver of the World Wrestling Federation sponsored Pontiac Firebird Funny Car, 13th with an elapsed time of 5.063-seconds at 297.88 mph.

Dale Armstrong, Crew Chief - "We were looking to improve our time over Friday nights run. The track conditions today were good; we should have run 5.00 seconds flat at least. This morning we got behind a run because we smoked the tires. We tried something new today in our procedure to improve on consistency and discovered it worked."

Jerry Toliver - "We are not overwhelmed by the times we ran today. In the last three races, we have made 16 passes and only smoked the tires twice. Hopefully, we have our clutch problems figured out and now we can really get after our elapsed time. The big picture is that we are taking small steps and are moving forward at a steady pace to get this program turned around."
