As she prepares for 2008, Will still has focus on 2007

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (September 11, 2007) -- Just minutes from Graceland, the mansion of the King of Rock and Roll -- Elvis Presley -- and world-famous Beale Street, where the Blues fill the air nightly, sits Memphis Motorsports Park, the home to this weekend's 20th annual NHRA O'Reilly Mid-South Nationals.

This is one of those spots that hold fond memories for Top Fuel driver Hillary Will, who advanced to her first NHRA final round here during her rookie season last year, finishing in the runner-up position.

This year the driver of the KB Racing LLC-owned, Kalitta Motorsports-managed "Support our Troops and Families" dragster, wants to advance to the winner's circle. "We won three rounds at this race last year and I have every reason to believe that we can win four (rounds) this year," said Will.

With only a handful of races remaining on this year's NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series schedule, Will feels that she has unfinished business to accomplish in 2007 as the team begins to prepare for 2008.

"We have five races remaining in the 2007 season and we want to make them count," added Will, as she continues to focus on 2007 and at the same time is looking ahead. "We want to be spoilers for some of the other racers trying to make the top four in this year's Countdown. We want to gain momentum going into the 2008 season. Most importantly,we want our KB Racing team in the winner's circle."
