In the final of the round five eliminations in the Competition Eliminator division Browell matched up with Glen Treadwell. Treadwell had a 0.07 CIC penalty, Browell had a 0.03. Treadwell hit it late and it cost him, as Browell got the hole-shot victory.

"I was pretty sure once I put it in high gear that I had him," remarked Browell, "but you're never really sure until the light comes on."

Browell says there are only two things on his mind when he hits the line ready to get-it-on, "I try to stay calm and focus on my lane only."

Browell Racing has been in five finals in seven races, he won two of those. He has the D3 points lead and sits in the number three spot in the national points race.

Off the track Browell busies himself making other racers more successful. Browell Bellhousing manufactures precision aluminum and steel bellhousings, and components for motorsports plus many other applications. Many of the most well-known names in motorsports rely on Browell Bellhousing to deliver durable, lightweight and reliable bellhousings and components to help them set records and win championships. The list of top-tier racers using his products is really quite staggering.

"We are now casting our own blocks and heads so making more power should be right around the corner," adds Browell.

The K&N sponsored racer won his first career NHRA national event title in 1999 on the same Commerce, Georgia Dragway.

"We'll definitely be using K&N filters again this year and every year," says Browell.
