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.

ANGELLEFor Angelle Sampey, the change was refreshing.

None of her friends in Mathews, La., talked about drag racing or Pro Stock Motorcycles or what elapsed time she had or what crazy NHRA fan said what on the Internet. Folks around the Raceland/Mathews community recognized her as the owner of Ava Jane's Baby Boutique, on Highway 1 by the Walmart. It was as if she neatly had put her 15-year, three-time championship career in a box, closed the lid, put that box in a closet up on a high shelf, and then slammed and locked the closet door.
