TOPEKA, Kan- Defending Division 5 Federal Mogul Dragster Champion David Wells will be looking to defend his crown at this weekend's Division 5 opener at Heartland Park in Topeka, Kansas.

Wells is coming fresh off a semi-final finish at the O'Reilly Nationals in Houston where he was defeated by eventual runner-up Troy Buff. The "Plain Vanilla"/ Blue Bunny Ice Cream team will be looking to improve on that finish in Topeka.

Wells said, "We are going to be working alot in the clutch area and with the fuel system to try to make it get down the track. We hope to get it down in the .50's, the track has some new surface, and its gonna need some rubber."

"[Billy] Bybee and [Mark] Kinser are going to be tough, were gonna have to be ready," said Wells.
