Chris Demke Looking to Defend 2010 Winternationals Championship
Pomona, Ca. -- The Top Alcohol Dragster Team of Maddern Racing with Chris Demke behind the wheel is ready for their first ever National Event Repeat Victory. The 2010 Winternationals Top Alcohol Dragster Champion team is based in Sun Valley, California and is looking forward to competing at their home track where family and friends can attend.
The 2011 Season started out on a high note for Demke's Team. They powered their way to yet another #1 qualifying position leading into last weeks Division 7 2011 kick off race in Phoenix, Arizona. The team ran a very respectable 5.286 at 271.95 miles per hour.
'We suffered a fuel pump malfunction after Monday's rained out rescheduled qualifier in Phoenix last week" noted Demke, "that forced us to change engines before eliminations. We were under a significant time restraint and not able to warm up the car prior to going to the staging lanes.
"Unfortunately, we had a fuel leak that was inadvertently missed and forced us to abort the run".
That was then and this is now. The Peen Rite - Clean Boost Oil Sponsored Team is more than ready to defend their 2010 Championship in Pomona this weekend at the 51st Annual running of the Kragen-O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA Full Throttle Winternationals.
