Hillary Will not in field for tomorrow's eliminations

LAS VEGAS (October 27, 2007) -- For the first time since she turned professional in 2006, Hillary Will, driver of the KB Racing LLC-owned, Kalitta Motorsports-managed Support Our Troops and Families Top Fuel dragster, missed the field for the seventh annual NHRA ACDelco Las Vegas Nationals by 28 thousandths of second and will not be part of the elimination program tomorrow.

Will's best run of four qualifying passes at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway was an elapsed time of 4.625 seconds, good for the No. 17 spot.

Will had qualified for 44 consecutive races.

"It kind of surprised me that we didn't make the show because over the past two years we have been consistent and made every race," said Will following qualifying. "It has happened to the best of the best this year and now it happened to us. This team has been together for two years and we're not going to get down. We're going to go to Pomona (Calif.), start a new streak, and end the season on a high note."
