KENT, Wash., (July 18, 2007) -- At the previous NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series national event in Denver, Scott Kalitta, driver of the bright yellow and red DHL Toyota Solara Funny Car, advanced to semi-final round for the first time since the NHRA event last fall in Richmond, Va. This weekend, July 20-22, Scott and the DHL team hope to build on their momentum at the Schuck's Auto Supply NHRA Nationals at Pacific Raceways in Kent, Wash., just outside of Seattle.

"Going some rounds is fun," Kalitta, a 45-year old resident of Palmetto, Fla., said. "It's amazing how a good weekend can re-energize a race team. It was really good to see some smiles on the guys wearing the yellow and red shirts in our pit area Sunday.

"We want to build on our momentum from Denver. We are still in the Countdown right now, but we really need to turn up the wick and keep winning rounds."
