SCRIBNER, Neb - Defending Division 5 Federal Mogul Dragster Champion David Wells will be gunning for his second Division 5 win this year at this weekend's Federal Mogul Drag Racing Series event at the Nebraska Motorplex in Scribner, Nebraska.

The Blue Bunny Ice Cream/ "Plain Vanilla" team is currently second in Division 5 standings behind points leader Billy Bybee, who has two in-division wins, and one out of division win. Wells, who already has one win and two runner-ups this year to his credit, hopes to make a late season run for the championship, starting with a win this weekend in Scribner.

Wells said, "There is two more races left in Division 5 that we can win, and we can pick up an of division race, so we still have a chance to win the championship. It looks like if we do it, it will be just like last year, and go down to the last race."

"Scribner is another tough track to get down. We have a pretty good tune-up that normally works really well there. Were going to go back to the normal altitude setup, and just take it round by round, that is the only way we are going to win the championship."

Qualifying begins at 3 p.m. on Friday for the Federal Mogul Dragsters, with two more sessions at 1 and 4 p.m. on Saturday. Eliminations will begin on Sunday.
