DOUGLAS, Wyo - Defending Division 5 Federal Mogul Dragster Champion David Wells heads into this weekend's Division 5 Federal Mogul Drag Racing Series race at Douglas International Raceway in Douglas, Wyoming looking for a repeat of his win there last year. In 1999, Wells dominated the race, qualifying No. 1 as well as winning.

This year, Wells is trying to catch up with current points leader Billy Bybee, who recently won the Denver Division 5 FMDRS. Wells qualified his Blue Bunny Ice Cream/ "Plain Vanilla" dragster No. 1 at that race, but lost in the semifinals.

Wells said, "We have a pretty good high altitude tune-up from Denver, but you have to calm it down a lot for Douglas. The track has a pretty good starting line, but it can get pretty loose on the top end."

"We're just going to have to do like we always do, and take it one round at a time," Wells added.

Qualifying begins on Friday, with eliminations starting on Sunday. To keep track of the Blue Bunny Ice Cream/ "Plain Vanilla" Racing Team's results, visit the National Hot Rod Association's website at www.nhra.com.
