By Jermey Millsop - Don't pinch Doug Kalitta.

The driver of the Mac Tools dragster is in the middle of a dream season.

Kalitta finds himself leading the Top Fuel division of the NHRA's Mellow Yellow series. He's already clinched a spot in the postseason Countdown and owns a 76-point lead over the hard-charging Antron Brown.

Kalitta has led or been second in the point standings all season and he's bringing his No. 1 ranking to Brainerd International Raceway for the Lucas Oil Nationals Friday-Sunday (Aug. 15-17).

"Over the years, I've actually done pretty well at Brainerd," said Kalitta. "I know it was one of Connie's (Kalitta) favorite places when he was still driving. So the idea is to go in, win the thing and head on home.

"I usually fly in Friday morning just minutes before qualifying and leave as soon as we're done racing. I enjoy going to Brainerd with all of the other activities and camping. They know how to do it right." Complete Story
