VANDERGRIFF STARTS FROM No. 2 POSITION IN COLUMBUS

HEBRON, Ohio (May 20, 2006)- Bob Vandergriff Jr. drove his UPS Top Fuel dragster to the No. 2 qualifying position at the Pontiac Performance NHRA Nationals at National Trail Raceway after posting a career best elapsed time of 4.513 seconds at 323.89 mph. Friday evening's qualifying session was cut short by rain shortly after Vandergriff's run was complete.

Under a beautiful blue sky, Saturday's two qualifying session's were plagued by intermittent electrical problems with the tracks timing system. This is Vandergriff's best start of the eight race old 2006 NHRA POWERade season with his Jim Dupuy-led team.

Vandergriff will have lane choice in the opening round of Sunday's elimination's against the No. 15 qualifier Luigi Novelli.
