"I feel very fortunate to have won the 2010 Jegs Cajun SportsNationals," says Raftery. "Some of the best racers from all over the country come to No Problem to get a shot at the coveted Wally."

Raftery knows what it feels like to win here, he's accomplished it twice before, in 2005 and 2008, driving his Jerry Bickel Pontiac GTO.

"It is a great feeling to now have won this event in my 2008 Undercover Motorsports Top Dragster powered by Sunset Racecraft. I am looking forward to running both Top Dragster and Top Sportsman at select NHRA Full Throttle National Events this year. To date, I am currently leading the Jegs All Stars points chase in both Top Sportsman and Top Dragster with one race to go. This event takes the number one point's leader, in each of the eight Sportsman classes, to crown a champion of the seven divisions contested. If all goes well, I will be racing the best of the best in Chicago June 3 - 6 at the Route 66 Nationals."

Raftery's relationship with K&N began just this year, and so far into the season, he says he couldn't be happier.

"I am currently using both the K&N air and oil filters. Many people may not know that K&N makes a filter for dragsters. We have tested the filter with no sacrifice in power whatsoever. What I really like about the filter is that it makes the scoop plug a thing of the past. No more having to worry about starting the engine with the scoop plug still in the scoop. This can be a costly mistake. We are off to a good start in 2010, and with the help of K&N Filters, I hope to win another division championship. One thing for sure - we have the support of a great team with K&N Filters."
