POMONA, Ca. (Nov. 11) - Mark Whisnant, driver of the RW Performance Chevrolet S-10 will enter eliminations at the 15th Annual Auto Club of Southern California NHRA Finals clinging to the 16th spot.

"I'm just glad to be in the show," said Whisnant. "Now I just need go out and win this thing.

When eliminations get under way on Sunday morning, Whisnant will meet Steve Johns in Round 1.

"I have Stevie Johns in the first round tomorrow. I'm not really worried about it. I think I can give him a run for his money. There are no easy rounds in this thing. Anyone can win on any day. I just need to make it my day to win.

"As tight as this field is, anything can happen out there. The lanes are pretty even, so that makes this into a driver's race. What I need to do tomorrow is have a good light and race our race. We need not to beat ourselves.

"It would be perfect if we could win this thing. We came here trying to meet our goal of getting back into the top ten. We will need to win tomorrow to do that. This RW Performance team is fired up to do just that. We are going to give it all we have, and maybe it will work out for us and put this S-10 in the winner's circle tomorrow night."

Eliminations at the 15th Annual Auto Club of Southern California NHRA Finals begins promptly at 11:00 Am PST.
