Treble believes records could tumble in Reading

Reading, PA -- Friday Pre Race: The second attempt at running the rained out Lucas Oil Nationals in Reading Pennsylvania this weekend may feature even better record breaking weather conditions than the event that was attempted three weeks earlier. "This may be the weekend someone grabs the $10,000 for running the first 6 in Pro Stock Bike, I sure would love for it to be us." Said Craig Treble referring to the inaugural spot in the Mickey Thompson 6 Second Club.

The next great barrier the NHRA Pro Stock Bikes have been flirting with has been the 6-second run. "All the top teams have been working very hard to get that first 6 second time slip, and I can tell you that our Matco Tools team has been as serious as you can get trying to put our name first in the Mickey Thompson 6 Second Club."

The debut of the new Matco Tools Suzuki at this track three weeks ago also give the Matco Tools Team an added sense of excitement. Craig explained, "We ran a 7.170 / 185, which put us in the No. 3 spot, but we now know from running in Memphis that we can give this bike more than we attempted to last time here in Reading. I think we will need to step it up anyway because the way the weather conditions are looking right now, our 7.17 might just be the bump spot by Saturday night."

The Pro Stock Bikes are scheduled for two Saturday Oct 4th qualifying sessions at 11am, and 2:30 pm.
