BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -
In Nostalgia Top Fuel, White, the No. 1 qualifier from San Diego, Calif., finally shed his March Meet bridesmaid status and got a bit of revenge by beating the tough Brett Harris. White lost to Harris in the 2009 March Meet final, but this time, White ran a 5.70 at 249.21 mph to Harris' 5.78 at 251.34 and claimed his first March Meet win. Harris, a two-time March Meet titlist from Kaysville, Utah, is the son of the legendary Jack "The Sheriff" Harris, a three-time March Meet champion.
Now celebrating 53 years of racing, the March Meet is a three-day speedfest produced by the Kern County Racing Association, which operates Auto Club Famoso Raceway (just north of Bakersfield, Calif.) and promotes a full schedule of races year round. The world famous March Meet is recognized as the Mecca of nostalgia drag racing. For more details, visit www.autoclubfamosoraceway.com.
