McClenathan No. 9 at Finals in Pomona

POMONA, Calif. (November 5, 2005) -- On the strength of a 4.534-second run at 324.20 mph in Saturday's first qualifying session, Cory McClenathan, from Lake Havasu City, Ariz., who drives the Carrier Boyz Racing FRAM AirHog dragster, finished No. 9, as qualified ended today for the 41st annual NHRA Automobile Club of Southern California Finals at Pomona Raceway.

With two of his 28 career wins coming at the Automobile Club of Southern California Finals, McClenathan hopes to wrap up this year's event with another trip to the winner's circle. His two wins at the Finals came in 1992 and 2002.

"It was a trial and error weekend for the Carrier Boyz Racing FRAM AirHog team," said McClenathan. "We are trying to win this race, while at the same time trying to get ready for next year. We're still trying to be consistent and maybe we tried some things we shouldn't have. Tomorrow we want to at least go a couple rounds. We still have a shot to get to eighth in POWERade points."

McClenathan will face Larry Dixon in tomorrow's opening round of eliminations. Dixon qualified No. 9 with a pass of 4.522 seconds at 326.45 mph.
