This 2009 kickoff race marked Bogacki’s third consecutive final round appearance at the annual event. The Alabama resident won the opening day of the Mobile Footbrake Nationals in 2007 and took runner-up honors to Mark Taylor last season.

During Bogacki’s 2008 racing season he claimed 4 IHRA national event titles on route to top ten national finishes in three Sportsman Class categories (Stock, Top Dragster and Quick Rod). He was also awarded the IHRA Sportsman Driver of the Year Award.

Bogacki uses K&N 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.”

Bogacki also had a diverse run of strong bracket finishes pocketing at least $50,000 at several different events in 2008 and hopes to do the same in 2009.
