Tire Spin Helps Sideline Toliver at Fall Nationals

Jerry Toliver's first-round experience Sunday in the O'Reilly Fall Nationals at the Texas Motorplex was, as Yogi Berra has said, "deje vu all over again."

Toliver's ROCKSTAR  Energy Drink/AutoZone Toyota Solara Funny Car put up a
good fight for the first  three seconds of the quarter-mile run before the tires
spun and took away any  chance of winning the race against Tim Wilkerson.
"We were  ahead at half-track," Toliver said.  "The car shook and skated
around and  as I was thinking about whether to lift, the tires spun and Wilkerson
went by me  so I shut if off.  This is the same thing that happened last week
(at  Memphis).
"We are frustrated, but we will keep our noses to  the grindstone and keep
going for a win.  We have three more races to go  this season."
