BELLE ROSE, La. - NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster driver Shelly Howard enters the drag racing equivalent of the seventh inning stretch in the Division 4 season during this weekend's Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at No Problem Raceway in Belle Rose, La., just north of New Orleans. Howard currently trails Lee Callaway by 44 points with just two races remaining on the division schedule.

Howard, from Tulsa, Okla., hopes to gain ground on Callaway and to keep him out of the winner's circle this weekend. However, her plan to accomplish that goal is not to focus on him, but on herself.

"We always take a gameplan of just worrying about us," said Howard. "We don't like to get caught up in points, who we're running and all of that. That kind of stuff is fine to look at before and after a race, but during it, your best bet for success is just to run your own race. So just like always, we're going to just try to all do our best, and worry about our own game."

Qualifying will begin on Friday for the alcohol cars with two more sessions on Saturday. Final eliminations will conclude the event on Sunday. Stay tuned to InsideTopAlcohol.com for the latest news in alcohol racing.
