“Coming into the season, I felt like I still had four major goals in racing that I hadn’t accomplished,” said Bogacki. “I wanted to win a NHRA national event, a day of the Winter Series, a major NHRA or IHRA world championship and a Winter Series Points title. I still have the dream of becoming a world champion or 5-day points champ, but it’s been a great season. I was able to mark two of those accomplishments off my list.”
Bogacki earned his first NHRA national event victory in April with a Super Comp win at the Southern Nationals in Atlanta, Georgia. He backed it up with a second title at the Mid-South Nationals in Memphis, Tennessee in October. He also earned multiple victories during this seasons’ Winter Series.
After the Bradenton win, Bogacki took another final round in a 1/8th mile event at Palm Beach International Raceway. Bogacki drove Jon Siegel’s Wheelie Wagon Malibu Station Wagon.
“Brian and I are pretty good buddies,” said Bogacki. “We talked about re-distributing the purse a little bit and even agreed to race for $1.000. Then we decided to split it even and swapped cars for the final. The tech guys at the end of the track were really confused when we got out of each others’ cars. It was a lot of fun.”
With a couple of bracket outings remaining in 2009, Bogacki has raced in 20 final rounds coming out with 16 event victories. In addition to his two NHRA national event crowns, Bogacki also claimed a pair of IHRA national event wins and the IHRA Summit All Stars Title in Top Dragster. On the bracket racing scene, Bogacki picked up three $10,000 triumphs and a pair of $5,000 victories.
Bogacki uses K&N air filters. “K&N helps my engine perform the way it should,” he said. “I can also count on K&N for additional power and great filtration to help me get to the Winner’s Circle.”
Bogacki will wrap up his 2009 campaign with pair of big dollar bracket events at Holly Springs Motorsports Thanksgiving weekend and at Carolina Dragway next week.
