Howard hoping to maintain lead in Scribner

SCRIBNER, Nebr. - NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster driver Shelly Howard will head into this weekend's Division 5 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event in Scribner, Nebr., with the mission of maintaining her Division 4 points lead. The former champ currently leads Lee Callaway by 26 points heading into this weekend.

Howard, from Tulsa, Okla., hopes to take advantage of the hot conditions forecasted for this weekend.

"It's really a shame we have to look forward to it being hot and a marginal track," said Howard. "But if you go anywhere that has a decent track and decent conditions, the A/Fuelers are nearly unstoppable. I don't think we're entirely safe this weekend. The track will be somewhat of an equalizer; it has some pretty good bumps. We'll just go try to do our best and see where the chips fall."

Qualifying will be ran on Saturday with three sessions for the alcohol cars. Final eliminations will conclude the event on Sunday. Stay tuned to InsideTopAlcohol.com for the latest news in alcohol racing.
