Will turns attention to Reading

MOHNTON, Penn. (September 27, 2006) -- This weekend Hillary Will, who drives the KB Racing LLC-owned, Kalitta Motorsports-managed Top Fuel dragster, returns to the rerun of the rain-delayed NHRA Toyo Tires Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway, near Reading, Penn. This make up edition unfolds Friday through Sunday, Sept. 29-Oct. 1.

Two weekends ago, relentless rains forced the postponement of the event. The advance weather forecast for this weekend calls for cool temperatures, with daytime highs in the 60s, and cloudy skies. A slight chance of rain (20 to 40 percent) is mentioned on all three days.

With only four races remaining on the 2006 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series schedule, Will, who now calls Ypsilanti, Mich. home, can move up in the point standings and solidify her position as one of the leading candidates for the Automobile Club of Southern California Road to the Future Award (Rookie of the Year) with a good showing at Maple Grove Raceway.

The highest ranked rookie driver in the NHRA POWERade Top Fuel point standings, Will holds the ninth position entering the 22nd running of the NHRA Toyo Tires Nationals. She is only 50 points out of eighth spot and 113 points behind seventh.
