HALLSVILLE, Tex - Current Federal Mogul Dragster points leader Jay Meyer will be going into the fifth stop on the Division 4 tour at Hallsville Raceway, in Hallsville, Texas, looking to gain something he hasn't since 1986 - the Division 4 Championship. Meyer has won all four of the Division 4 races this year thus far.
Meyer can clinch the championship mathematically if two things happen. If Meyer makes it to the finals, he clinches the title. If Meyer does not make the final, long time rival and friend Troy Buff must win to stay in contention.
"We're just going to go out there and do like we do at the rest of the races, we are going to put as much to the track as we think it will allow," Meyer said. "We're going to try to be No. 1 qualifier and win the race like we always do. We are not going to change our attitude or gameplan."
Meyer added, "We found that our back-up motor had a crack in it and had to get it sent off to be repaired at the last minute, so we will be back to our 'conservative/aggressive' attack we used at the Division 4 race in Dallas when we only had one motor. We will have the block back in time for the race, but it will just be for emergency use."
Meyer last raced at Hallsville Raceway in 1993 where he was involved in a shutdown area crash with former FMD pilot and current Stock Eliminator racer Amy Faulk, and has not returned since.
Meyer said, "I am sure I will be a little nervous that first run. I talked to Dickie Simpson [father of Federal Mogul Funny Car driver Todd Simpson] and he told me he thinks Hallsville is a better track than Baton Rouge is now, and we made it down that track fine. I am sure once we get that first pass under our belt, we will be ok."
