Howard looking for continued success in Dallas

ENNIS, Texas - With the season winding to a close, NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster driver Shelly Howard hopes to score a win at this weekend's O'Reilly Fall Nationals presented by Castrol Syntec at the Texas Motorplex just south of Dallas. Entering the event fresh off of clinching her second Division 4 Championship, Howard hopes to have a strong outing to help her national points.

Howard, from Tulsa, Okla., enters the event currently sixth nationally. With the event being the last that she can claim towards her points total, she hopes to make the most of it. Racers in Top Alcohol Dragster can earn points at their best five of the first eight national events they attend.

"As always, we hope to have a strong outing," said Howard. "You can think about the points before a race, and after a race, but we don't really like to think about it during a race. You have enough to worry about as it is. If you just concentrate on making good runs, the points will come. We're just all going to try to do our jobs the best we can do, and make solid runs down the track."

Qualifying begins on Friday for the alcohol cars with two sessions. Saturday will feature one final qualifying pass and first round of eliminations. Final eliminations will conclude the event on Sunday. Stay tuned to InsideTopAlcohol.com for the latest news in alcohol racing.
