HERBERT QUALIFIES FOR TOUGH VEGAS FIELD

LAS VEGAS (October 27, 2007) -- Doug Herbert, driver of the Snap-onFranchise.com Top Fuel dragster, piloted his way into a hard fought field at this weekend's ACDelco Las Vegas Nationals.

With 23 dragsters fighting for the chance to race on Sunday in Sin City, the 16 cars making it into the field are separated by a mere 0.11 of a second.

Herbert's best pass of the weekend came in the first session on Saturday. The Snap-onFranchise.com dragster breezed down the quarter-mile in 4.55 seconds at 317.42 mph, placing him at No. 11 in the quick field.

"We made a decent run this morning," said Herbert. "When the field is so close like this, it doesn't really matter where we qualify. We got in, and we can win from everywhere. We plan on putting this Snap-onFranchise.com dragster in winner's circle."
