“We can’t look back and say this was a bad season,” said Britt Cummings. “We all had our moments. We are moving forward next year and hope to take our program to the next level. We’re a world championship caliber team, we’ve proven that in the past and anything short of that really does not meet our expectations.”

Britt Cummings is also looking forward to a full race schedule next year. He spent much of his time over the past few seasons at home with his wife who fought cancer. "The latest prognosis is good," he said. "Our family life has resumed some degree of normalcy. We race as a family and when you've got a serious illness in the family it takes its toll on everyone. It's behind us now and the future looks bright at home and on the track. We're looking forward to getting back out in force and getting back to that championship level of competition."

The Cummings Team will add a Phantom Chassis hot rod in Top Dragster competition to its stable of vehicles in 2010. “We use K&N products on all our vehicles,” said Cummings. “With K&N we’re faster and very consistent on the track. Our K&N air and oil filters help us get to the Winner’s Circle.”
