22nd Annual Toyo Tires NHRA Nationals/Maple Grove Raceway

Enters this weekend's event ranked 11th in the NHRA POWERade Pro Stock Series points race.
Was defeated in the first round by Jim Yates at Maple Grove Raceway in 2005.

"I'm looking forward to racing at Maple Grove Raceway this weekend. I believe that moving our team over to work with Allen and Roy Johnson, as well as the entire J&J Racing team, is going to be a great move for us. We were able to make some runs during the Mike Hayes Southeastern Mopar Meet over the weekend, and we've been testing in Richmond since Monday. The runs we've made in the past couple of days were right on track with the other teams and I think the success that Allen's been having can carry over to our team. Right now, our focus is to get back into the Top-10 in the point standings. If we can build our momentum up to that point it would be a great way for us to cap off the season."

"Working with Allen and the J&J Racing team is going to be a lot of fun. I've always gotten along with Allen; I've known him for a long time. We actually got our pro stock licenses at the same time after going through Roy Hill's driving school. Mark Ingersoll and Mike Gott are great guys to work with and they pay a lot of attention to detail. I think this is the best team chemistry I've ever worked within and it will be a good partnership to move forward with. Our goal is to have a strong finish to this year and work toward getting next season off to a great start."
