Callaway signs South Texas Dental for hometown race.

BAYTOWN, Texas - Defending NHRA Division 4 Top Alcohol Dragster Champion Lee Callaway will once again carry the South Texas Dental logo into battle during this weekend's O'Reilly Spring Nationals presented by Pennzoil at Houston Raceway Park. Callaway and South Texas Dental, who have teamed up in the past, have came to terms for this weekend's race.

Callaway, who lives within earshot of the track in Baytown, Texas, is excited not only about his new deal with South Texas Dental, but is ready to race in front of his hometown fans.

"This is a big race for us," said Callaway. "We're real happy to be working with South Texas Dental again for this race. We'll have their President and CEO, Dr. Barry Gomel and many of their employees from Houston out there this weekend. We really want to show them what NHRA Drag Racing is all about, and how we can use the marketing power this sport has to benefit them. This is our hometown race, so we want to do good for all of our friends and family in the area."

Coming fresh off a runner-up finish at the Division 4 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event in Memphis, Tenn., Callaway hopes to carry some momentum into the event.

"It's going to be a tough field this weekend," stated Callaway. "That's where I really rely on my tuner Tom Conway and my crew lead by Stacy McLemore to give me a fast car to drive. Not to knock anyone else, but I really feel I have one of the best teams in the class behind me. That makes my job of driving a lot easier. We're going to have to get after it for sure this weekend, because there will be a lot of heavy hitters down here."

Qualifying begins on Friday for the alcohol cars with two sessions, followed by one final session Saturday morning. Eliminations will begin with first round on Saturday afternoon, and final eliminations will conclude the event on Sunday. Stay tuned to InsideTopAlcohol.com for the latest news in alcohol racing.
