The Woodville, Alabama resident knocked off former IHRA World Champion Troy Williams in the final Top Dragster round. Bogacki won at the wheel of his CSR Performance Products backed American Race Cars dragster with K&N products, the same car he drove to the 2007 DragRaceResults.com Bracket Racing Series National Championship.

Bogacki eliminated the competition during the first four rounds and went into the semi-final round surrounded by two former world champions and two close friends. “I really had mixed emotions going into the semis,” he said. “At that point it was Troy, Jason Lynch and I. Troy and Jason are two of the very best racers in the country and they are two guys I really respect.”

Williams drew the semi-final bye run which paired Bogacki with Lynch. Bogacki posted his best reaction time, a .003 and went 4.727 on a 4.71 dial in to defeat Lynch. Minutes later, Bogacki and Williams returned for a final round.

“Both of these guys have been instrumental in any success that I’ve had,” said Bogacki. “But Troy crushed me way back in 2003, so I owed him one.” In the final, Bogacki took the reaction time advantage, .010 to .021 and held on to win a narrow double-breakout contest with a 4.698 (4.71) dial to Williams 4.416 (4.43 dial)

“Winning in Texas is a big deal for me,” said Bogacki. “Things just fell into place for me and my new HEPC Brodix 12 degree 582 monster. It weighs 2070 lbs at race weight and the motor pushes it to 4.60’s.”

Bogacki uses K&N Engineering air filters. “K&N helped my engine perform the way it should,” he said. “I can also count on K&N for additional power and great filtration.”
