Kalitta eyes move up POWERade standings
Englishtown, prerace: Doug Kalitta, driver of the bright red Mac Tools Top Fuel dragster, is hoping that the next half-dozen events will help him and his Mac Tools team make a move up in the POWERade points.
“We have our eye on eighth place right now,” Kalitta said. “We’re in 12th, but we’re only 85 points away from that all-important No. 8 spot. It is certainly within our reach. Our car has shown some big improvements in the past couple of races, so I think this swing of races will be really good for us.”
This season the NHRA instituted the Countdown to the Championship points format for all of the professional classes. At the end of the first 17 events, only the drivers in the top eight in points in their respective classes will be eligible to win the season championship.
“We’ve had some great performances at Englishtown,” Kalitta said. “The weather looks pretty good for this weekend, so hopefully we and the fans will see some more big numbers from our Mac Tools car.”
