Seattle, WA, August 05, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- As the Peen Rite/Clean Boost Top Alcohol Dragster Team makes their way north for their first of three races on a Northern Mini Tour, they hold close in their hearts the memory of last year's Northwest Nationals in Kent, Washington.
As the winners of that event from 2010, which to this day remains secondary, this is also the one year anniversary of fellow competitor Mark Niver’s untimely “perfect storm” fatality. The two teams were to compete against one another in the final round.
“This race has a lot of history for us from only one short year ago” noted Demke, “in Mark’s honor, we hope we can win back to back events.
“We’re running very consistent right now and the weather is supposed to be good. It’s unfortunate that there’s a low car count for the dragsters at this event, neither here nor there, we’re aiming towards valuable points for the National Championship.”
The Maddern Top Alcohol Racing Team goes into this event in fourth place within the Lucas Oil National Points Championship Series.
Upon completion of the Northwest Nationals, The Peen Rite Team will head to Brainerd, Minnesota and finish up their Northern Swing at the US Nationals in Indianapolis.
