AL-ANABI TEAMMATES DIXON, WORSHAM QUALIFY SECOND AT WINTERNATIONALS

POMONA, Calif. (Feb. 12, 2009) -- Al-Anabi Racing teammates Larry Dixon and Del Worsham both earned the number two position for Sunday's eliminations as all six Toyota-sponsored drivers qualified for the 50th annual Winternationals at the Auto Club Raceway at Pomona. Dixon was edged by .001 second for the top spot in his Toyota-sponsored Al-Anabi Racing Top Fuel Dragster. The Southern California native had registered the fastest time on Friday in provisional qualifying and was second-quick on Saturday to accumulate five bonus points during qualifying.

Worsham will start Sunday's Funny Car eliminations from the number two spot in his Al-Anabi Toyota Camry Solara. He notched his fastest run on Thursday. He will match up with Jeff Arend in the first round of eliminations on Sunday.

Three of the four Toyota-sponsored Top Fuel drivers finished in the top half of the field to give them lane choice in Sunday's first round. In addition to Dixon, Morgan Lucas placed fifth, while teammate Shawn Langdon placed eighth. Antron Brown placed 11th. In the Funny Car ranks, Cruz Pedregon used his final qualifying run to secure his spot in the field on Sunday. The 2008 Funny Car champion placed 16th in qualifying.
