LUCAS SERIES BATTLES HEATING UP AS RACERS HEAD TO ROUTE 66 RACEWAY Joliet, Ill. ? NHRA North Central Division racers will head to Route 66 Raceway for the Chicagoland Dodge Dealers Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event July 16 ?18. The event is the third of six in NHRA North Central Division competition in the revamped 2004 division schedule. In prior years it had been the first stop. Top Alcohol Dragster (TAD) pilot Bill Reichert and his 270 mph-plus Bar?s Leak dragster from Owasso, Mich., comes to Joliet with the points lead after his win in Stanton, Mich., last month. Jeff Wilson, from Winfield, Mo., on the strength of a victory at the North Central Division?s 2004 Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series opener at Indianapolis Raceway Park, holds onto the No. 2 points spot. Both will be challenged by the like of Marty Thacker, who was the No. 1 qualifier at Indy and recorded the best times of that event, 5.240 seconds and 263.67 mph. West Central Division invader David Wells opened the 2003 North Central season with a win at Route 66 last year, but Jeff Wilson, Thacker and Reichert divided up the remaining five North Central events wins between them. Wilson edged out Thacker for the 2003 North Central Championship. Alcohol Funny Car driver Mick Snyder comes into the Chicagoland Dodge Dealers event with the points lead after a stunning season-opening win at Indy, where he stopped veteran Danny Townsend in the final. But 2003 North Central Division Champion Chuck Cheeseman, of Galena, Ohio, who closed out last season with five straight divisional wins, began what he hopes is another string of five by winning in Stanton, Mich. With that win, Chesseman is currently third in the points behind Snyder and Townsend. After Joliet, the NHRA North Central Division racers will head to Edgewater Sports Park near Cincinnati, for their next Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event. That three-day event is scheduled for Aug. 6-8.
