"The Bender" Coming To The PDRA In 2018

(Jan. 22, 2018) - Top Dragster racer and owner of Bednar's Auto Service in Ocala, Florida, Brian Bednar, aka "The Bender" is thrilled to announce that with the support of FTI Performance of Deland, Florida, he will be running the entire eight race PDRA series in 2018.

Brian is honored to bring a new sponsor to the PDRA in FTI. FTI is the premier torque converter and transmission manufacturer in the racing industry. With multiple big money bracket race winners and all of the NHRA and IHRA 8.90 and 9.90 World Champions in 2017 utilizing FTI performance products, this makes the perfect combination.

Brian will be running FTI’s PPG level 6 powerglide and popular XPM Billet bolt together converter to show just how competitive and fast this combination is.

Last year "The Bender" totally dominated the Open Outlaw class at the Bradenton Motorsports Park "Heads Up Madness" Series with this combo, by going undefeated the entire season and running as quick as 3.73 @ 196 mph with his Chevy powered Spitzer dragster.

He also welcomes associate sponsors Jim Evans, engine builder extraordinaire at Rolla Competition Engines, The Blower Shop for their ultra efficient XR1 blower, NGK spark plugs to keep the fire lit, Mickey Thompson tires that consistantly put the power the ground and The Wrap Pros in Ocala, FL for their awesome graphics.

Brian, a former PDRA T/D race winner says, "Running the PDRA series is a dream come true and having the support of FTI performance is icing on the cake. I am very much looking forward to running the PDRA races, there

is no better racing organization on the planet. Being racers themselves, the management 'gets it' and the group of racers at these races are truly a family. To those of you that have not yet raced a PDRA event, I urge you to do so, you'll see what you've been missing."
