Del Worsham enters the fifth race in the Countdown to 1 NHRA Playoffs in seventh place in the NHRA Full Throttle Funny Car point standings. He trails sixth-place Robert Hight by eight points and leads eighth-place Tim Wilkerson by 22 points.

Worsham will be working with interim crew chief Rod Centorbi again this weekend. Dickie Venables was released from the team following the Sept. 26 event in Dallas.

Worsham prior to Las Vegas:

"I am excited to get to Las Vegas this weekend. The Al-Anabi Toyota team had a great outing at Reading, and I think everyone on the team is looking forward to this weekend so we can try to keep our Reading momentum going for these last two races. We've been to the semifinals at the last two races; we've made some changes on the team, and it was fun to watch all the guys step up and do their jobs so well at Reading. It's been a long year, and it nice for all of us to win some rounds.

"We aren't in a position to race for the Full Throttle championship anymore, but we know that we can move up higher in the points. If we keep working like we have been, we could possibly finish in the top five in points, and that would be a great result for the Al-Anabi team. That's pretty good goal for us to set right now."
