Celebrating 52 years of racing, the March Meet run at the historic Auto Club Famoso Raceway (just north of Bakersfield, California) is a three-day speedfest, it's the Mecca of old-school drag racing, or as fans refer to it 'the Jewel of Nostalgia Racing.' It's a big deal regardless of how you tag it and Doug Davenport, the Las Vegas, Nevada resident piloted his blue-jewel, front-motored econo dragster to victory in the Nostalgia Eliminator II division.

"It's was almost as good as winning the NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series in 2009," says Davenport. "We had some problems when we arrived at Bakersfield because I switched tire manufactures (M/T to Hoosier) and the new tires hooked so well we were having problems getting off the starting line. After some fine-tuning we got it figured out and we were off to the races. I really believe it's every drag racers dream to win the March Meet and this dream came true for me in 2010. I have been going to the March Meet since 1968."

Davenport says if all goes to plan he would like to repeat as NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series Champion this year. Which is a very realistic goal for the veteran racer.

"K&N has sponsored me in all my racing efforts for over 20 years and they have simply been great," comments Davenport. "Whether it was off road-racing (MTEG), or the NASCAR Sportmans Series, or my drag racing career, they have been behind me all the way supplying the best oil and air filters in the business."

Davenport says there are a few other things he's energized about for the season. "I am really excited about our Nostalgia Funny Car (The War Horse AA/FC) for 2010, and working with Kenny Koretsky, and the "NITRO FISH" brand on the NHRA circuit."

Davenport will be attending over 30 drag races this year, so it's going to be a busy 2010 for "Dynamic" Doug Davenport.
