It's Back To Business for David Powers Motorsports

Houston, TX 8/15/05 David Powers Motorsports will get back in action at this coming weekend's NHRA O'Reilly Mid-South Nationals August (22-25) in Memphis and begin working their way back into the Top 10 points standings.

The Top Fuel team recently under went a few personnel changes, resulting in the David Powers Homes/ Valvoline mean machine being tuned by talented Crew Chief Lee Beard. Beard's win record includes 52 National events and two points Championships.

"It's definitely not the easiest task to join a new team in the middle of the season, but overall I feel the transition has gone pretty smoothly for everyone involved," said Beard. "The guys have been unbelievable and everyone has put in 110%, to say the least. The NHRA Fram-Autolite Nationals in Sonoma was our first event together as a team and for the most part the car and team preformed very well. We have spent the last few weeks working together and now we feel more prepared to hit the track in Memphis and hopefully, bring home the team's first win."

Currently "Hot Rod" Fuller is 13th in the point standings, but that's not going to be for long.

"We've got one race under our belts as a team and now our goal is to go as many rounds as we can to try and move up in points," said Fuller, Top Fuel driver for Powers Motorsports and 13 time NHRA National event champion. "It won't be easy, especially considering we have not attended all National events this season, but regardless our goal is set, the team is determined and we are going to give it all we have to finish in the Top 10. As everyone knows in this sport, anything is possible."
