SM: Chris Demke season preview

Chris Demke and The Peen Rite Team Ready for 2011 Racing

Sun Valley, Ca. -- Repeating a successful drag racing season is a tough act for any team. Following the success of 2010, the main goal for Chris Demke and The Peen Rite Top Alcohol Dragster Racing Team is to not only repeat, but also take an incredible journey towards earning the #1 Lucas Oil National Championship Title.

Demke's team, led by Jerry Maddern, has established themselves as a major player within the NHRA Full Throttle and Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Alcohol Class. Their accomplishments from last year include #2 Nationally, 8 Number 1 qualifying positions, 6 wins (3 National and 3 Divisional) and clocking an elapse time and speed of 5.256 at 273.55 miles per hour during the 2010 racing season.

"2010 was a great year for us" noted Demke, "we are all ready to get off of our winter break and start racing again. We were so close to winning the Championship last year, that we're hungrier than ever.

"It's always exciting to start fresh at the beginning of the year. Our strategy isn't any different than 2010, only that everyone starts out even in the points chase."
