TEAM HAMMONDS QUALIFES AFTER TWO DAYS OF SUSPENDED COMPETITION

(POMONA, Calif., Feb. 7, 2009) -- Team Hammonds qualified for elimination Sunday after running their first round of qualifying today at the 2009 NHRA Winternationals after two days of suspended competition due to rain.

The team registered 6.682 seconds (206.20 mph) and a pass against Steve Spiess to sit in 14th place going into tomorrow's contest.

"We are really glad to have qualified for tomorrow's eliminations, but we did not have a very good run," said Tom Hammonds, owner/driver of No. 20 Race for Achievement Chevy Cobalt. "I know we still have some power in our Chevy Cobalt that we are hoping to run better than we did today."

Today, competitors were only able to run once out of a scheduled two qualifying rounds before being called due to another rainy day.
