For Rodger Brogdon and the Steve Kent racing Pro Stock team, this weekend's NHRA AC Delco GatorNationals can't come soon enough. After the race in Phoenix, the team left with a checklist of items that needed attention, but also with renewed enthusiasm knowing that they were now headed down the right path.

With a considerable amount of on track testing being done in the last two weeks, the team has been able to address the areas that needed attention and were ready to head for Gainesville, when a Cagnazzi Racing engine became available for both Gainesville and Houston.

As Rodger Brogdon put it, "It's a perfect opportunity for us. We've addressed some situations in our setup that we had identified, and both of our engines showed very good power in testing, so we were happy with the progress we've made, but being able to run with an engine from Victor's race shop should allow us to refine our setup even more. With the power that they've shown in the Jeg's car this year, this should be an interesting weekend."

"Gainesville is a track that's been good to us." Rodger added, "In 2007 when we ran Pro Stock we qualified 10th, the best we qualified during our early Pro Stock run. Last year we were back here in Comp and were able to leave with the Wally on Sunday. With the improvements that we accomplished testing, and Cagnazzi power for the event, hopefully this year's trip to Gainesville will rival the excitement of years past."

Race results for this weekend's event and every NHRA National event are available on line at www.dragracecentral.com, with television coverage available both Saturday and Sunday on ESPN2. Check your local listings for broadcast time in your area.
