Treble anxious to defend Sonoma event title.

Sonoma, CA -- Pre Race: For one final time this season, Craig Treble will enter a NHRA POWERade event with the goal of defending his win from the previous season. At the Fram Autolite NHRA Nationals in Sonoma, The Matco Tools Suzuki rider believes he can repeat his performance from last year and come away with another win

"We have been all over this bike since the last event in Denver" said Treble. "I spent a week at Vance & Hines going through my engines, then Mike and I went to Woodburn and tested during the Pro Stock Invitational". During testing at Woodburn, the Matco Tools bike ripped elapsed times of 7.19 and 7.20, all while the Pro Stock Cars were running 6.90's, a full .154 off their pace from Seattle.

"I've been here before during this season, but I feel we have the bike straightened out, we have plenty of power, and I can't wait to get to Sonoma and race." said Craig." last season we had great air to race in at Infineon Raceway, but I don't think the weather will support the speeds we ran in '02"
