Wilson looking to start run on next season.

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Sometimes in any sport, you have to look past the short run and look at the long term picture. Such is the case for NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster driver Jeff Wilson and his Associated Builders & Contractors/Starcon backed team heading into this weekend's Division 3 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series closer at National Trail Raceway in Columbus, Ohio. Wilson plans to test new chassis components hoping to get a run on next season.

After smoking the tires at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, Wilson, from Winfield, Mo., consulted with his chassis builder Mike Spitzer, and plans to test several new components on his state of the art chassis.

"Right now we are starting to look at next year," said Wilson. "So we think this weekend is a great opportunity to try some new things with the chassis. I can't say enough about the assistance Mike Spitzer at Spitzer Race Cars has given us. We took a look at some things after Indy, and we came up with a new direction to try, and we're going to run that this weekend. We really think that it will make us much more consistent if it works like we think."

"Hopefully we can learn some more things about this car at the last few races," continued Wilson. "We really want to focus on the Championship in 2003."

Qualifying begins on Friday for the alcohol cars, with two more sessions following on Saturday. Final eliminations will conclude the event on Sunday. Stay tuned to InsideTopAlcohol.com for the latest news in alcohol racing.
