Monaghan obtains TAD License in Chicken Chokers Machine.

Cecil County, MD (April 28) -- After a shut off run Friday night due to 48-degree temperatures and no traction, Fran Monaghan, Jr., and the Chicken Chokers TAD returned Saturday and completed licensing requirements.

Team manager Len Cottrell expressed his pleasure with the results, "I would like to personally thank track manager Jim Halsey and his staff for their hospitality in accommodating us during his Bracket Championship races on Saturday and allowing us to complete. This was critical to us as we have three key races in the next four weeks, including the opener for the Division 1 points championship series."

The air and track conditions at Cecil County were better than the team expected, and Monaghan made a best run of 5.51 seconds at 254 mph. The Chicken Chokers team will compete at NHRA Atlanta this weekend.
