TORRENCE IN ANOTHER DUEL WITH KALITTA
Texan Back Home for Two Key Races in Capco Contractors Dragster
DALLAS, Texas – Hello, Texas! With a third consecutive NHRA Top Fuel title hanging in the balance, Steve Torrence rolls his Capco Contractors dragster onto the all-concrete surface at the Texas Motorplex this week for the first of two back-to-back races in his home state that could determinine who hoists the trophy in the most bizarre championship chase in drag racing history.
Torrence, who has dominated the tour the last four years, winning a remarkable 31 races over that span, will lead veteran Doug Kalitta by a scant two points when qualifying begins Saturday in the 35th annual AAA Texas FallNationals.
