Top Alcohol driver Chris Demke would love to clinch his first Top Alcohol Dragster championship.
Demke, of Tejunga, Ca., hadn't planned on racing this weekend's NHRA Nationals in Reading, Pa., but a string of misfortunes related first to the Charlotte postponement and a semi-final loss to Joey Severence, put the driver on the road this week. He's pulling double-duty this weekend in finishing up the postponed event and trying to win the Reading crown.
“The Charlotte make-up race counts as my tenth race and the last race I can claim for points," said Demke. "While I'm here at Maple Grove, I'm really only thinking about Charlotte. Although we brought enough oil and parts to run both races, our first focus is winning the Charlotte race."
