Troxel to Appear on ABC's Indy 500 Pole-Day Coverage

Melanie Troxel, the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series Top Fuel points leader and two-time national event winner this season, will be a guest on the ABC Sports pole-day coverage of qualifying for the Indy 500 this Saturday, May 13.

Troxel, the hottest Top Fuel driver in NHRA right now, will share the ABC Sports broadcast booth with commentator Marty Reid sometime during the 3-6 p.m. ET event coverage on the national network.

Driving the Skull Shine/Torco Race Fuels Top Fuel dragster for Don Schumacher Racing in her first full season of Top Fuel competition, Troxel has reached the final round in six of the first seven events in 2006 and holds the record as the first Top Fuel driver in NHRA history to make it into five consecutive final rounds at the start of a season.

She leads driver Doug Kalitta by 132 points in the class rankings.

Troxel, 33, lives in Avon, Ind., and is married to Funny Car driver Tommy Johnson Jr.
