Bakersfield Score for Canadian Guru!

Tim Boychuk’s win in Nostaliga Nitro Funny car was not the only major Canadian victory during last week’s March Meet out in Bakersfield California.   Legendary Canadian racer and tuner Les Davenport (Dewinton AB) also scored when he won the A/Fuel dragster category.   Davenport’s win was impressive as he won from the pole position after setting low ET of the event at 6.197 secs during qualifying.  He then ran 3-straight low 6.2s including a final round 6.222 at 216.27 mph to beat out Kin Bates in the championship final round.   (Photo by:  Marc Gewertz)
