Thacker Heads to the "Big Go"

Marty Thacker and the Rapid Transit Race Team will to head Indianapolis, Indiana this weekend to see if they can earn their second win at O'Reilly Raceway Park this year. The Team, sponsored by Knoll Gas -- Torco Racing Fuels, won the divisional event here last month and they are hoping to get their blown alcohol Top Alcohol Dragster in the winner's circle again on Monday.

"Last weekend, the car was running really well all through qualifying in the heat and then in the first round we broke a bracket and that was the end of our race. But that is the way racing goes sometimes. I am glad we get another chance at it this weekend. And it is the biggest race of the season," said Thacker.

The Team currently sits in second place divisionally and sixth place nationally. By going rounds this weekend they have the possibility of moving up in the national standings.

"This race is pretty close to home so we have a lot of people come out and watch us throughout the long weekend. We would love to give them all something to cheer for on Monday. There is only one U.S. Nationals and a win here can make a good season great or a bad season good. This year we hope to bring home the Wally for Evan and all the great people at Knoll Gas -- Torco Racing Fuels."
