When the blue CSK Impala made its debut Friday in Atlanta, Arend was 3rd on the qualifying list and had reset both of his career-best marks. Worsham Racing uses K&N Engineering products on both of their CSK Funny Cars. “The thick canister walls on the K&N Oil Filters have extra strength and durability,” said Team Manager Bob Wilber. “It reduces the risk of damage from debris in our engines.”
On Saturday, Arend earned a first round with Gary Densham. The race was decided quickly and Arend was moving on.
“Del Worsham won too, and that was a big win for our whole program,” said Arend “We’re intent upon being in the mix when the playoff system starts in September and have a lot of motivation with the thought of a possible all CSK semi final.”
In the second round, Arend joined Tony Pedregon and Gary Scelzi as second-round losers. His teammate Del Worsham lost to Robert Hight. “For us, a statement was made in the first round and in qualifying,” said Arend. “We still have so much potential to show. I’m glad we’re racing next weekend because I can’t wait.”
Team Worsham will race at St. Louis the first weekend in May.
