Chris Demke and Von Smith were the headliners at the Division 7 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series in Bakersfield, Calif., where they each scored their second triumphs of the season with respective victories in Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car. The event was conducted with a number of TAD national championship implications at stake; Jim Whitely and Duane Shields competed at this race while points leader Bill Reichert attended the inaugural Charlotte national event. Smith?s win placed him into a tie for second place in the Division 7 standings with runner-up Terry Ruckman at 266 points each, and both have a solid chance of surpassing points leader Doug Gordon because Ruckman has competed at only four races, and Smith has a DNQ to discard and plans to attend an out-of-division event in Noble, Okla.
