Wells looking for continued success in Brainerd

BRAINERD, Minn. - Former three-time Division 5 Top Alcohol Dragster Champion David Wells has come to enjoy racing at Brainerd International Raceway in Brainerd, Minn. Wells and his Blue Bunny Ice Cream/ "Plain Vanilla" team has won three events at the facility, and would love to use a win at this weekend's NHRA Division 5 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event to better both his World and Division Championship hopes.

Wells, who runs mechanical operations at the family's ice cream plant in LeMars, Iowa, is currently locked in a points battle with last year's Div. 5 Champ Alan Bradshaw on both the divisional and national level. Despite enjoying past success here, Wells cites a brand new track surface will keep everyone on their toes this weekend.

"We've ran well in the past here, but they have completely redone the track," said Wells. "So its very hard to judge what the track will be like. It's definitely going to be tricky until they get some cars down it. Nonetheless, we're still going to give 110% to try to pull off the win. We need the win and we need to stop Bradshaw in the process."

Qualifying begins on Friday and will continue on Saturday with two sessions. Final eliminations will conclude the event on Sunday.
