Division 7 Jegs Allstars Representative Chris Demke and Maddern Racing Head to the Windy City’s Chicagoland Raceway
Joliet, Ill. -- This weekend marks one of the biggest races of the year for all NHRA Sportsman competitor’s that compete regional within the Jeg’s All Stars Title Competition. This race is an honor for all of the racer’s as they represent their respective divisions through out the country.
This is one of the few weekends where you combine names like Bill Reichert, Randy Meyer, Marty Thacker, Jim Whitely, Duane Shields, John Finke, Mike Manners and Chris Demke (to name a few) all vying for this coveted championship battle. This combines not only division versus division, but the biggest race within a race in the NHRA Drag Racing Series.
“We are pumped up for this race” noted Demke, “the best of the best are here in Chicago and we don’t always get to race against each other. Very few people have ever doubled up at this event, and we sure would like to add our name to that very small list.
“We would like to send a special Thank You to the Jeg’s organization for keeping this program going year after year. It’s not only fun for all of us, but it’s a long year worth of dedication and hard work to be a Divisional Representative for each and every class that will compete this weekend.
“We have won back to back events, but we’re all on an even playing field this weekend and it’s business like usual, one pass at a time.”
The Maddern Top Alcohol Racing Team goes into this event in fourth place within the Lucas Oil National Points Championship Series and has 4 final round appearances in 2011.
