Humphreys Runs Straight; Fifth Quickest at Fall Nationals
Knoll-Gas Energy Pontiac Post Two Solid Runs

ENNIS, Texas, Sept. 21, 2007 -- There were smiles around after each of Justin Humphreys' two Friday qualifying runs in the opening round of the O'Reilly Fall Nationals at Texas Motorplex.

While the first run of 6.741 seconds was a relief, his best effort -- in good conditions -- was 6.692 at 205.94 mph and left the RaceRedi Motorsports/Knoll-Gas Energy Pontiac fifth going into Saturday's final two qualifying runs.

"That was just what we needed," said Humphreys. "We had that good first run and we were able to step it up on the last one."

Team consultant Bob Glidden worked on different parts of the car Sunday after not qualifying at Memphis last week and they tested Monday. "We finally have that car going straight down the track," Glidden said.
