Humphreys 13th going into Saturday at Fall Nationals; He misses 12th by .22 mph in tight field

ENNIS, Texas, Sept. 19, 2008 -- "We're missing something somewhere," Justin Humphreys said after putting the RaceRedi Pontiac GXP into the provisional 13th starting position Friday for Sunday's O'Reilly Super Start Batteries Fall Nationals at the Texas Motorplex.

"We had a pretty good run (on his second attempt) but it didn't turn out exactly like we expected," he added.

The result, a 6.661-second time, equaled that of Larry Morgan, but Morgan got 12th place because his speed bettered Humphreys', 206.48 to 206.26 mph.

"Frank (Gugliotta, crew chief) will sleep on it tonight and we'll figure it out for Saturday," said Humphreys, who won his first NHRA Pro Stock race Sunday at Charlotte.

Two more runs are on tap to set the 16-car starting line-up.
