NINTH TOP FUEL POLE FOR TOYOTA DRIVERS IN '10

JTORRANCE, Calif. (July 17, 2010) -- Larry Dixon edged fellow Toyota driver Antron Brown to claim his fifth pole of the season in preparation for Sunday's NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series' Fram Autolite Nationals at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, Calif.

The one-two marks the fourth time this season that Dixon and Brown have qualified first and second at the same race, with Dixon capturing the pole on three of those occasions. The duo has combined to register nine number one qualifying positions in 15 races this season. Things didn't go as well for the Morgan Lucas Racing team, though, as the team has struggled in qualifying. Morgan Lucas will begin eliminations from the 10th spot, while teammate Shawn Langdon qualified 12th.

Cruz Pedregon continued his recent strong run in Funny Car qualifying with a fourth in his Toyota Camry Solara. It is the third time in the last four races that Pedregon has qualified fourth or better. Not far behind was Del Worsham, who had the fastest qualifying run in today's final round to place sixth overall.
