The finals only host the best-of-the-best. More than 600 racers vie for team spots from Florida to Canada in the Eastern division. Team No. One consisted of the ten best racers from each track in the East. Heather and Allison Bell both made Team One. Each member of Team One received a Wally and a $300.00 U.S. Savings Bond for their combined efforts on race day.

“We left Hershey, Pennsylvania for Bristol, Tennessee with high hopes,” said Heather Bell. “There was rain the first two days. We were finally able to get in our cars and get serious on Friday.” First round consisted of the 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 year old age groups. Neither sister won in their age groups, but both contributed to team points.

Team Bell’s home track is Maple Grove Raceway in Pennsylvania. “It is one of the toughest tracks on the East Coast,” said Bell. “We took three teams from Maple Grove to Bristol. After the first round at the Junior Dragster Eastern Conference Finals, we still had seven of our racers in the competition. Our team went on to win the conference championship with the biggest margin of victory ever.”

Team Bell uses K&N Engineering products. “K&N helped us make it to the championship round,” said Bell. “No matter what track conditions we come up against, our cars are very consistent with K&N. Our engines are also protected with K&N.”
