Craig Treble Helps Matco Tools Celebrate It's 25th Anniversary at Gatornationals.

Gainesville, FL -- Thursday Pre Race: Craig Treble will enter this weekend's 35th annual Mac Tools Gatornationals hoping to start this season the way he ended the last, winning the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock Bike event title.

"We finished very strong last year, and with the adjustments and changes made in the off-season, we hope to be in the front of the pack in Gainesville", said Treble

The team will return to Gainesville Raceway with a new eagle-themed paint scheme honoring Matco Tools' 25th anniversary. "I am really happy to be associated with Matco Tools this year, and feel privileged to help celebrate their 25th anniversary," explained Treble

Craig Treble will again be relying on Vance & Hines horsepower for his Suzuki in 2004, something Craig says makes him feel confident and comfortable. "I have always run Vance & Hines engines, and I have a great relationship with the whole group over there."

"Also in the off-season, the decision was made to go back to our earlier '03 Kosman chassis, and with the help of Bobby Shahan we made some revisions that should put us where we need to be in terms of consistency and performance".

The Matco Tools team has been out testing the updated chassis, producing runs that the team views as exciting. "The bike made nice, straight, clean runs, and yielded some terrific 60 foot numbers. We are ready to go racing", remarked Craig.
