* Del Worsham is in 10th place in the NHRA Full Throttle Funny Car point standings; he trails ninth place by 37 points and first place by 192 points after the third race in the Countdown to 1 NHRA Playoffs. Worsham is making his first appearance in NHRA Playoffs.

* Last week in Memphis, Worsham was the No. 14 qualifier and lost to Ashley Force Hood in the second round of eliminations. He has two wins this season; he visited victory circle in Madison, Ill. and Bristol, Tenn.

* One year ago at Virginia Motorsports Park, Worsham was the No. 10 qualifier and lost to Jack Beckman in the first round of eliminations; he has never won at Virginia Motorsports Park.

* Worsham has 24 wins in his Funny Car career; he is seventh on the NHRA's all-time Funny Car wins list trailing sixth place by just two wins.

Worsham prior to Virginia Motorsports Park:

"We are halfway through the playoffs, and unless things change a lot in a hurry, it'll be pretty tough for us to challenge for the championship this year. There are a lot of great things about our race team; Dickie and Kurt are working figure out what we can do better so we can improve and be a better team in the future. We have three races to go in the season, and we'll do our best to get a little bit better each race. If we can win one of the three remaining races, that will be a great step for our Al-Anabi race team."
