Connolly Second after Friday Runs at Las Vegas; Torco Racing Fuels Chevy Runs 4.754 Seconds

LAS VEGAS, October 26, 2007 -- Dave Connolly began his quest for a sixth straight Pro Stock victory Friday by posting a 6.754-second, 203.98-mph run in the day's second session to claim the provisional No. 2 qualifying berth for Sunday's ACDelco Nationals at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

This event kicks off the final two races in the Countdown to One with Connolly holding a 10-point lead.

"The track kind of bit us in our first round (6.790 at 204.08)," he said, "and it shook in second gear. We made some changes and are happy with the way it ran in the second session."

He trails pacesetting Justin Humphreys by four-thousandths of a second going into Saturday's final two qualifying attempts.
