Vandergriff sitting in No. 6 in Sonoma

SONOMA, Calif., (July 28, 2006)- As the first day of qualifying at the FRAM Autolite NHRA Nationals came to an end, Bob Vandergriff Jr. found his UPS Top Fueler sitting in the No.6 position in the Top Fuel ladder. After a tire-smoking first lap on a newly assembled chassis, crew chief Jim Dupuy interpreted what the car needed and made the adjustments that produced a 4.607 second run at 321.12 mph.

"We are certainly pleased with the 4.60," said Vandergriff. "The second run gives us the optimism that we are headed down the road with a more consistent racecar. The car responded nicely and is giving us what we were hoping for."
