Nicholson ready for Brainerd after success at Lebanon Valley

Brainerd, MN- Darren Nicholson, the driver of the J C Auto Glass Top Alcohol Dragster will be entering Brainerd fresh off a win at a NHRA Division 1 race at Lebanon Valley Dragway.

Nicholson entered West Lebanon as the defending champion, winning the event last year.

"We got to West Lebanon with our parts inventory low but our confidence high. We hurt two motors at Norwalk, due to an out of balance clutch assembly, so we were low on parts" said Nicholson.

"Ignition problems during qualifying kept us from qualifying well, but we had it sorted out by eliminations and managed to get the win. Entering Brainerd, one of my favorite races on the NHRA tour, we have a restocked trailer and some motor issues that have plagued us all year are worked out, so my confidence level is really high" noted Nicholson, who is 2nd in Division 1 points.

The 29th Annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals is the 17th stop on the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series and the 8th stop on Darren Nicholson's search for the 2010 championship.
