Monrovia, Md., Driver Pleased with 6.660-second Winternationals Effort

POMONA, Calif., Feb. 7, 2008 -- Justin Humphreys easily erased the memories of a preseason test session filled with problems Thursday during his season-opening run of 6.660 seconds at 207.94 mph in the CARQUEST Auto Parts Winternationals at Pomona Raceway. The elapsed time put him sixth overall with three more qualifying attempts scheduled before Sunday's race.

"That was a very good run considering we had to play a guessing game last week (during cold-weather testing at Las Vegas)," said Humphreys. The Monrovia, Md., driver of the RaceRedi Motorsports Pontiac is beginning his second season of NHRA Pro Stock drag racing. "Now we can go back to basics." The outcome also pleased crew chief Bob Glidden. "It was a good run. We'll take it. The five guys faster than us were the fastest ones during testing last week," he noted. Humphreys' best at Las Vegas was 6.723 seconds.

Qualifying calls for one run Friday and two Saturday to set the 16-car line-up.
