Howard hoping to continue her success on the mountain.

MORRISON, Colo. - NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster driver Shelly Howard hopes to add to her successes on 'The Mountain' during this weekend's NHRA Division 5 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Bandimere Speedway just outside of Denver. Howard has won two of her three national event wins here, and hopes to continue the success this weekend.

Howard, a registered nurse from Tulsa, Okla., is quick to credit her success on 'The Mountain' to tuner and former two-time World Champion Tom Conway. Conway won numerous events in Denver during his driving career.

"Denver has always been a special track for us," said Howard. "We won our first national event here, and won the last time we came here in 2001. Needless to say, it's been a good track for us, and our tuner Tom Conway has won here many times as well. That aside, it won't make us any better for this weekend, so we still have to go out and do our jobs, but it's still nice running here."

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.
