The Peen Rite / Clean Boost Performance Oil Maddern Racing Top Alcohol Dragster Team with Chris Demke at the wheel, out lasted the competition for the win this past weekend at the third of six Lucas Oil Pacific Division 7 event in Bakersfield, California.

The Peen Rite Team secured their position to compete later this year at the prestigious 2011 Jegs All Stars Race at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet this coming July.

"This weekend was really big for us" noted Demke, "first, it was the week of Jerry Maddern's birthday. He really wanted to run a 5.20 something which we missed by only 4 thousandths of a second. However, he's pretty happy with the Wally and that we ran our quickest ET ever at Bakersfield by more than a tenth of a second.

"We also had veteran clutch man Jim Young handling all of our clutch duties along with fellow racer Mike Austin helping us with miscellaneous jobs around the pit.

"The field was uncharacteristically short due to several teams competing in Topeka as well, but a win is a win, and we'll take it".

The Peen Rite Team secured the #1 qualifying position for the 2nd time this year and set low et and mph of the event running a 5.303 at 272.27 mph. This win has moved the team into the Number 2 position within the Lucas Oil National Championship points chase.
