JOLIET, Ill - Defending Division 5 Federal Mogul Dragster Champion David Wells will be looking to regain his championship form at this weekend's Prestone Route 66 Nationals at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois. Well's last win was at the Division 7 closer at Firebird Raceway in Phoenix, Arizona last October.

Wells said, "We are just going to put it back to the way it was at the end of last year. We tried the new Hoosiers and it messed our gear ratios all up, and then we tried the new alcohol Goodyears, and didn't do much better. So, we are just going to put it back to the way it was, and go from there."

Wells had run as quick as a 5.50 in his “Plain Vanilla”/Blue Bunny Ice Cream entry at the end of last year, and that is considered a good run this year.

"We missed Dallas, and we aren't the Division 5 All-star, so we aren't going to Columbus, so we decided to go to Joliet," said Wells. "We raced there two years ago, so we are going to go out there, put it back the way it was, and see how it goes."
