Luke Bogacki’s thirty-sixth Ohlins monthly tutorial column has posted on ThisIsBracketRacing.com. This month, Bogacki discusses the inherent advantages to a positive outlook and an open mind. His column, titled “Conspiracy Theory” is available to subscribers on ThisIsBracketRacing.com.
“Every successful racer has their own unique driving style, but you can take ideas, strategies, and habits from other good racers. I know I have. If I had to list the racers who have influenced my own racing in a positive way, it would require a whole separate column. That list is always growing, because our sport is constantly evolving. If you think you know everything there is to know and you’re as good as you can be, you’re fooling yourself.”
Bogacki, the 30-year-old editor of ThisIsBracketRacing.com earned his reputation as one of the most successful big dollar bracket races in the country. In addition, he has also enjoyed great success in NHRA and IHRA competition in recent years. In 2010, he won the NHRA Division 2 Championship in both Super Comp and Stock Eliminator, and drove to top ten national finishes in both categories. As a result, he was awarded the NHRA Division 2 Sportsman Driver of the Year honor. He’s earned 9 career national event victories in NHRA and IHRA to go along with 6 division championships. Bogacki was voted the 2008 IHRA Sportsman Driver of the Year on the strength of an amazing season that resulted in an unprecedented top 5 national finish in three separate IHRA categories (Quick Rod, Top Dragster, and Stock Eliminator). Those accolades complement a host of big dollar bracket racing victories and accomplishments that include over 50 individual event wins of $5,000 or more, and points championships within the DragRaceResults.com Bracket Series, B&M Racers Appreciation Series, Southern Super Tens Series, Tenn-Tuck Triple Crown, and more.
