RICK TREADWAY RACING NEWS - Treadway To Start From Pole Position The #5 Mi-Jack, McClure Oil car qualified at 12.4 seconds and will start the NAMARS 500 Lap race tomorrow from the pole position.Over 77 entrants, coming from 8 states and New Zealand, and representing many of the top drivers and teams in short track open wheel racing, qualified today for a place in the 33 car field for the NAMARS 500 Lap Feature event.

Thanks to everyone who has helped us the past few weeks as we've struggled with handling problems on the car. We finally replaced some of the suspension parts which may have solved some of our problems. It felt pretty good out there today and in practice yesterday.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support and for coming out to the track to watch us race. Our 5th place finish last week puts us 5th in points for the season.

We hope you can join us tomorrow night at the Speedrome, and lets hope Mother Nature cooperates with us too!
