Luke Bogacki: American Race Cars At-Track Representative
Millbury, OH: American Race Cars and Luke Bogacki Motorsports are proud to announce an increased affiliation in 2015 and beyond. Bogacki, who won the 2013 NHRA Super Comp national championship at the wheel of his K&N Filters backed American dragster, has driven American Race Cars dragsters exclusively in Super Comp, Top Dragster, and bracket competition since purchasing his first ARC machine in 2005. Starting immediately, Bogacki will act as an at-track representative: serving American Race Cars customers with advice, expertise, and troubleshooting diagnostics in the suspension, chassis, and overall setup of their race cars.

“Personally, my time and to some extent my desire to be at the race track every weekend becomes more limited each season,” explained American Race Cars co-owner Mark Horton, a former IHRA World Champion in his own right. “We need to have someone at the track, not so much to push our product, but to provide service to our customers. Most American Race Cars owners know Luke, and they trust him. He works hard, he knows his stuff, and he can explain things in a way that everyone can understand. He’s been a part of our team since the beginning, so expanding his role here at American Race Cars was a logical step. Our customers and as a result our overall product will be better for it.”

Since going into business in 2005, American Race Cars has quickly established itself as the premier chassis builder in the sportsman dragster market. Bogacki and Edmond Richardson combined to win the last two NHRA Super Comp national championships in American Race Cars built dragsters. In addition, the company boasts hundreds of happy and successful customers in Super Comp, Quick Rod, Top Dragster, and bracket competition.

“I think it’s safe to say that Luke has made more passes down the track in an American Race Cars dragster than anyone, it’s probably not even close,” Travis Colangelo, American Race Cars co-owner said. “Over the years, he’s run Top Dragster, Super Comp, and bracket combinations ranging from 6.80 ET’s to 8.20’s, and he’s had success in all of them. He understands how these cars work. We’ve worked together for a long time – we’ve learned a lot from one another and will continue to do so. We’re confident that Luke will be a great extension of our technical service team at the race track.”

As part of this agreement, Bogacki will be available to all American Race Cars customers for complimentary service and advice. He can provide insight via phone or e-mail, and will be available to assist American Race customers hands-on at events that his team attends. Luke Bogacki Motorsports currently campaigns a pair of American Race Cars dragsters: the K&N Filters backed Super Comp machine, and a bracket entry that will now fly the American Race Cars colors. The LBM bracket dragster is driven mainly by Luke’s wife, Jessica at local and regional big dollar bracket events as well as limited Super Comp appearances. The Luke Bogacki Motorsports team will attend 6 NHRA Mello Yello Series national events in 2015 (Topeka, Chicago, Brainerd, Indianapolis, St. Louis, and Dallas); every NHRA Division 3 Lucas Oil Series event (in addition to the double Division 5 event in Topeka, KS); and select big dollar bracket races including the Great American Bracket Race, the C.A.R.S. Million, the $25K Showdowns, and the annual Florida winter series.

“I’m excited about this agreement and growing my affiliation with American Race Cars,” beamed Bogacki. I’ve helped a lot of ARC customers over the years with suspension setups and chassis adjustments, but for the most part that’s been limited to my friends and people who have sought me out. With this announcement, my role will expand, and I look forward to helping more racers get the most out of their American Race Cars machine. Mark, Travis, and the staff at American build the best dragsters in the world; but there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ setup. Every combination wants something a little bit different. Over the years, I’ve fielded a pretty diverse lot of ARC entries, so I’m confident that I can lead customers in the right direction.”

American Race Cars and Luke Bogacki Motorsports encourage any ARC customers to contact Luke with questions and concerns about their combination. In addition to at-track service, Luke can be reached by phone at 256-679-8328, e-mail at, and on Facebook or Twitter.
