Herbert In 12th Position After Friday Qualifying Session

Pomona, Calf. (Feb. 10, 2007)- After two qualifying rounds at the CARQUEST Winternationals, Doug Herbert and Snap-on Tools dragster hold 12th position in the 16 car field.

With a mostly cloudy sky covering the California sun, the air temperature was cool for the Friday afternoon qualifying session. The conditions at Herbert's home track proved favorable as he posted a solid 4.56 at 318 MPH.

In addition to being back at his home track, Herbert had a special guest watching his second qualifying pass. Chet Herbert, Doug's father and hall of fame member, was in attendance.

"It was great having my Dad here today," said Herbert. "As for the car, we found a couple problems yesterday. It looks like we have a car we can tune now, and we are feeling more confident than ever."
