Dave Gallegos Acquires IHRA Top Fuel License Set to Debut at Budds Creek

Dave Gallegos, 39 years old from Saint Mary�s, Kansas, officially acquired his IHRA Top Fuel competition license Sunday, September 23rd, at Milan, Michigan in Mitch King�s La King�s Confectionery machine. Dave has been bracket racing for years and joined the nitro ranks as a crew member on Joe Hartley�s Top Fuel Dragster in 2005 and 2006 before joining Mitch King Motorsports for the 2007 IHRA tour. The team has had much success this year in the nitro funny car ranks advancing to three final rounds in nine completed events this season in search of a top five finish, while also competing in all nine events with the Top Fuel car. Dave got his feet wet behind the wheel of a nitro machine earlier this year in King�s �Bone Bucket� AA/Fuel Altered during competition with the Outlaw Fuel Altered Association and now accomplished his goal of obtaining his IHRA Top Fuel license.
