McClenathan sees rebound at Phoenix

Chandler, Ariz. (March 5, 2004) - Cory McClenathan, driver of the Carrier Boyz Racing Berryman Products Top Fuel dragster, sees a rebound at this weekend's NHRA Checkers Schuck's Kragen Nationals at Firebird International Raceway in Chandler, Ariz., just outside Phoenix.

"I said prior to the season-opening Winternationals that this Carrier Boyz Racing team, led by crew chief Jimmy Walsh, would be a factor in the point race this season," commented McClenathan, on the eve of qualifying for the Phoenix event. "I still see as a factor. Even through we had some small mechanical problems at the Winternationals, I feel you will see us rebound this weekend.

"We're a new team and the more runs we get, the more we will gel. The more runs we have together, the more you will see us become a giant killer and major factor. This whole teams believes we've got what it takes to be a winner."

Qualifying gets underway today with two sessions at 3 and 6 p.m. The final two qualify sessions will be held tomorrow with final eliminations for the Checkers Schuck's Kragen Nationals starting at 11 a.m. on Sunday.

Catch the Carrier Boyz Racing Berryman Products Top Fuel dragster in action when ESPN2 airs two (2) hours of qualifying highlights beginning at 11 p.m. (ET) on Saturday (March 6) and three (3) hours of eliminations at 7 p.m. on Sunday (March 7).
