Kalitta is low qualifier in Englishtown

Englishtown, NJ, May 17, 2003 -- Doug Kalitta regained his top qualifying form today at the K&N Filters NHRA SuperNationals by piloting his Mac Tools/Kalitta Motorsports Top Fuel dragster to an impressive 4.51-second, 327.59-mph lap down the quarter mile of the famed Old Bridge Township Raceway Park drag strip to claim his sixth top qualifying position of 2003.

Kalitta now has taken the top qualifying position 13 times in his career. Until today, he had never qualified better than seventh in Englishtown. Kalitta defeated Gary Scelzi in the final round in 2000 to capture his lone Englishtown title.

Kalitta will face Rit Pustari in the first round of final eliminations tomorrow, beginning at 11:00 a.m. (EST).
