MORRISON, Colo. – Top Alcohol Dragster rookie Greg Hunter enters just his second NHRA Lucas Oil Series regional event this weekend at Bandimere Speedway. The former Alcohol Funny Car pilot is adjusting quickly to his position as the driver of the ExactAir/Kenny Gilmour Motorsports Dragster.


“I feel right at home in the car. I absolutely love driving it; it’s a blast. It seems like we’re getting better and better at every race we run at, so hopefully this weekend will bring more positive results,” said Hunter.


The Wyoming resident is expecting to build on recent successful moments in his career, including his first round win at the Las Vegas national event. Crew chief and car owner Kenny Gilmour and his crew have been going over the car, finding any issue that would prevent them from running well.


“We had a couple parts failures in the ignition system at Mission. We also found a problem with the clutch that we thought was cleared up, but showed up again. Those issues were sorted out and the car is ready to qualify well and win rounds. This will be the first time at Bandimere Speedway for this team, but I don’t think it’s anything that they’re not going to be up for,” Hunter claimed.


Hunter and the ExactAir Compliance Systems team will be racing in front of friends and employees of their sponsors, so a solid finish couldn’t come at a better time.


Top Alcohol Dragster qualifying at the Thunder on the Mountain LODRS regional event starts at 4 pm on Friday, followed by two more sessions on Saturday. Pre-race ceremonies begin at 11:30 Sunday morning, with first round of eliminations starting right after.
