Sonoma, CA. - - To win a NHRA Winston Drag Racing National Event takes consistency and a little luck. New to qualifying in NHRA Pro Stock pilot Tony Gillig and his Shanahan Drywall Services, Wayne's Pizza team will be looking for both on Sunday, August 8 at the Autolite Nationals at Sears Point Drag Strip. Gillig for the second time this season will compete his red and white Olds on race day.

"Talk about consistency…for a while there we were consistently packing up and going home Saturday night. We couldn't find the problem with this Olds to save our lives. We figured the law of averages may just equal the situation out…no one can be that bad forever." Quips Gillig, he continues. "Qualifying earns us thoughts of perhaps winning an event. It may sound far fetched, but we are confident when the time is right for us, we can go round with this tough field."

Gillig has high hopes and expectations. Once again he will be going toe to toe with the forever-potent power of Kurt Johnson first round. "Who knows, maybe today is my day, maybe not. Once again I'm just happy to be here on race day two events in a row."
