Wells won the race in 1996, and will try to duplicate the feat in a car considerably different than his first winning mount. The 48 year-old will drive a compact 1993 Dodge Colt, much smaller than the full-sized Chevrolet Monte Carlo he drove to the win over a decade ago.
“My crew chief, Steve Morriseau, talked me out of retirement,” said Wells with a chuckle. “We don’t care whether it goes well or not, we just want to have fun, which is really what it’s all about. At first, I wasn’t sure about that little Dodge Colt we’ve got, but a lot of the recent winners have been smaller cars. I guess it could do it.”
