Torco Racing Fuels Pro Stock Cobalt Runs 6.622 Seconds

SONOMA, Calif., July 28, 2007 -- Dave Connolly turned in his best qualifying run Saturday with a time of 6.622 seconds at 207.02 mph and it put him fourth going into Sunday's FRAM Autolite Nationals at Infineon Raceway.

"We were going pretty good to that point," said Connolly, driver of Evan Knoll's Torco Racing Fuels Pro Stock Chevy Cobalt. "We broke a lifter in our motor on our last run and I had to shut it off. That's why we carry spare motors under the bench and we'll pick the one that will give us our best shot at winning the race."

Connolly, a winner last week at Seattle, races Ron Krisher (No. 13, 6.655 at 206.48 mph) in the opening round. Krisher uses a motor from Victor Cagnazzi Racing, the team for which Connolly competes.

"We know what Cagnazzi power is and we'll be ready for the first round and give it or best."
