Milford, Michigan. The 9th Annual CarQuest Auto Parts NHRA Nationals, this coming weekend at Route 66 Raceway, in Joliet, Illinois, will host the unique Jeg's All Stars "race within a race." The Jeg's event brings the country's top NHRA Sportsman racers -- the point leader in each class in each division -- together for a prize money shoot-out.

The VIPsports.com Dodge Stratus Top Alcohol Funny Car, driven by Danny Townsend, will compete in both the National event and the All Stars race for the second year in a row. "Last year, we were runner-up by just a slight margin," commented Frank Parker, team owner. "This year, we're zeroed in on getting Danny to the winner's circle -- twice. Running two full events stresses the team, but we love the challenge and we're hungry for win lights."

The ParkerTech Racing Services crew has qualified their Mopar Hemi-powered Dodge race cars at every race entered since mid-2001. This year, with just one divisional win, in Gainesville, they are seated sixth in National Top Alcohol Funny Car points and second in Division 3 points.

Qualifying for the Top Alcohol category is scheduled for Friday, June 9, at 1:00 pm and 5:30 pm. Saturday, June 10, will be a Sportsman racing fan's smorgasbord. The final Top Alcohol qualifying session will run at 8:45 am. The Jeg's All Star eliminations begin at 10:30 am, continue at 2:30 pm and wrap up with final eliminations at 4:00 pm. Sunday's opening ceremonies begin 10:00 am and final eliminations follow at 11:00 am. For more information on the race, and Route 66 Raceway, call 815-727-7223 or visit www.route66raceway.com.
