Gainesville, FL – With weather conditions as good as 1200 feet below sea level in the morning hours at Florida’s premier racing facility, Gainesville Raceway, the timing couldn’t have been better for teams in attendance.
The Peen Rite / Clean Boost Top Alcohol Dragster of Chris Demke and Jerry Maddern was in fact one of the benefactors of those conditions.
With an oversized DMPE MKII injector hat mounted on the dragster for first round of qualifying, Demke led his team to a 5.255 elaspse time that held up through three sessions into first round of eliminations.
“The Gorilla Injector hat received a lot of attention” lamented Demke, “unfortunately, for the second and third qualifier, the dragster pulled the front end and I had to abort both runs.

Belle Rose, LA – There is a reason why brothers Mike and Jeg Coughlin consider the annual JEGS Cajun SPORTSnationals to be one of their favorite races and it has nothing to do with the fact that both drivers are former champions of the event, which takes place this weekend (March 18-20) at No Problem Raceway Park in Belle Rose, La.
It is the fun atmosphere and unmatched camaraderie between racers that keeps the Coughlin’s coming back year after year and in 2011, there will be a swarm of yellow and black JEGS Mail Order machines in action as Mike and Jeg will be joined by their nephew, T.J., Jeg’s fiancée, Samantha Kenny, and Mike’s son, Jack, who will be making runs in his Jr. Dragster during the eighth-annual event.
Jeg, who won the Top Dragster title at the 2006 JEGS Cajun SPORTSnationals, plans to arrive in Belle Rose with a pair of brand new Undercover Chassis dragsters, one for himself and one for his fiancée, Samantha Kenny. The cars were completed just days before the event and will be raced following an abbreviated test session at South Georgia Motorsports Park.
