Four-time NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series Top Fuel Dragster champion Tony Schumacher, 2003 Funny Car titleholder Tony Pedregon and red-hot Dave Connolly have been selected today by Station Casinos oddsmaker Micah Roberts as favorites to win Sunday's NHRA ACDelco Las Vegas Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Connolly has won the last five NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series events in the highly-competitive Pro Stock class and shows no signs of slowing down as the world's best drag racers converge on The Strip at LVMS for the next-to-last race of the 2007 season.  He is listed at 8-to-5 and has replaced perennial Pro Stock favorites - and teammates - Jason Line and Greg Anderson at the top of the heap.
Hometown hero Rod Fuller is ranked fourth in Roberts' Top Fuel Dragster odds at 6-to-1.

Tickets for the Oct. 25-28 ACDelco Las Vegas Nationals, featuring the Technicoat Top Fuel Shootout, may be purchased by calling the LVMS ticket office at (702) 644-4444 or online at Spectator gates will open each day at 7:30 a.m.
