       Printer Image
Sportsman Racer Dan Fletcher is known for his driving in Stock and Super Stock. He is ranked at 13 in NHRA national events overall and is number one in the world in stock. This year Fletcher has placed first in national and divisional Stock events. He is on his way to 50 NHRA National event titles in 2007, a feat only 12 other drivers have accomplished.

The biggest surprise this year is his two NHRA Super Gas wins. The Corvette he drives belongs to a friend. “I like to think I can drive anything,” said Fletcher. “Every time I go to a race track I plan to win. Racing is what I do for a living and it’s my job to win.”

At Englishtown, New Jersey he was knocked out early in Super Stock, but was a surprising force in Super Gas. “I also won at Atlanta with Super Gas,” said Fletcher. “It all adds up to my goal of 50 championships for 2007.”

Fletcher is on his way to the second half of the NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series. It kicks off in the Rocky Mountains at Bandimere Speedway July 13-15. From there the Western Swing continues at Seattle, Washington and Sonoma, California.

Fletcher will race at more than 5,800 feet this weekend, where the altitude affects everything from engine tune-ups to aerodynamics. The Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals near Denver, Colorado brings out the skill and adaptability of the racers.

“I spend weeks on the road from February through November,” said the Churchville, New York resident. “This year is very exciting for me because my oldest son Thomas will be driving my Stock car at Seattle. We are going through the Western Swing as a family and it will be fun.”

Fletcher uses K&N Oil Filters on his vehicles. “Thanks to K&N my engines have outlasted and outperformed,” he said. “After 400 runs my engines stay clean. I also think the nut on the K&N Oil Filters is ingenious. It is so simple to change.”
