Opportunity is knocking for Team Scream

St. Louis -- Saturday: Craig Treble and the Matco Tools Suzuki will have just what they are looking for in their first round match-up at the Sears Craftsman Nationals in Madison, Illinois, a chance to take out a rider who they trail in points, while moving themselves up on the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock Bike championship list.

The opportunity is the result of qualifying 14th, lower than the team had hoped or planned on this weekend in Madison. "We took a few shots at the track, tried a few things we really thought would work, and spent time swapping out electrical parts, but the result was a best of 7.24. We actually ran quicker here in testing last week so that shows us that something is still not right with the bike." Said Treble

The first round race against Geno Scali will put the self proclaimed "Best Leaver in the class" against Treble who has twice won the season long All Pro/Bumper to Bumper/Auto Value RT Challenge. But what would look like a great match-up on paper, may hinge more on who doesn't leave first with the new LED lights.
