Wells looking to make up for Brainerd runner up

CLERMONT, Ind. - After suffering a disappointing final round loss two weeks ago at the Lucas Oil Nationals in Brainerd, Minn., David Wells and the Blue Bunny Ice Cream/ "Plain Vanilla" Top Alcohol Dragster team will be looking to make up for it at the biggest race of them all, the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway Park this weekend.

Wells, from LeMars, Iowa, hopes having five-time World Champion tuner Norm Grimes, who has one Indy win to his credit, will help give him the needed edge to win such an event.

"I have some real talent in Norm Grimes and my crew," said Wells. "I kind of let them down in Brainerd with that red light, so hopefully we can make up for it this weekend. We really need to go rounds to stay in the points chase. Hopefully we can put the car solidly in the .30's this weekend."

Wells realizes the path to the winner's circle will most likely go through several of the A/Fuel heavy hitters.

"With cool weather forecasted, its going to be tough to run with some of the A/Fuelers this weekend," stated Wells. "Actually, everyone in this field will be tough. We'll just give it our best."

Qualifying begins on Thursday for the alcohol cars. Stay tuned to InsideTopAlcohol.com for the latest news in alcohol racing.
