Kalitta desires a return to the Vegas winners circle

Las Vegas Highlights: Two wins (Fall 2015, Fall 2004); Four finals (Spring 2014, Fall 2007, Spring 2005, Spring 2003); Two no. 1 qualifiers (Spring 2005, Spring 2003)

Last Event Recap (NHRA Gatornationals): Qualified seventh; First round defeat (Lost to Richie Crampton in the first round)

2017 NHRA Las Vegas Nationals Recap: Qualified third; Semifinalist (Defeated Steve Chrisman in the first round and Clay Millican in the quarterfinals, lost to Tony Schumacher in the semifinals)

Quotable: “The Mac Tools team has been hard at work with this time off and we are excited to get to Las Vegas to experience the first four wide event. It is an exciting event and we are ready to be apart.”

Career Stats: 461 starts; 627 round wins (ninth all-time); 44 wins (Fifth all-time in Top Fuel); 92 finals; 49 no.1 qualifiers (tied 14th all-time)

2018 Season: One Win (Pomona-I); Four round wins; fifth in the standings

2017 Season Recap: One win (Charlotte-II); Four finals (Pomona-I, Norwalk, Charlotte-II, St. Louis); Two no.1 qualifiers (Norwalk, Charlotte-II); 34 round wins; third in the standings

Noteworthy: Next no.1 qualifier is 50th of his career, would be the 14th driver to earn that mark.
