Top Fuel Driver Cory McClenathan to Drive NASCAR Truck at Irwindale (Calif.) Saturday

IRWINDALE, Calif., July 6, 2006 -- NHRA Top Fuel driver  Cory McClenathan will
be going in circles again Saturday night, this time in a  NASCAR King Taco
Super Truck on Irwindale Speedway's half-mile  oval.

McClenathan, on hiatus from his regular job driving the Carrier Boyz FRAM Boost dragster, competed in the truck series in 2001 when he was between Top Fuel rides.

"I will be driving the Anderson  Brothers' truck," said McClenathan, who
drove an IMCA Modified racecar on a dirt  track at Sedalia, Mo., two weeks ago.  "
I am familiar with the truck series  because I competed in it a few years
ago.  I think the best way to describe  this series is that rules call for
everything to be the same, from trucks to  engines to tires.  The only thing
different will be the  drivers.

"It's a GMC truck and it will carry representation from all my drag racing sponsors. I have a lot of family and friends coming out so it should be an interesting evening."

McClenathan, a former Southern California resident now living in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., returns to quarter-mile POWERade Series action at Denver, July 14-16.
