Two weeks after winning the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals in Brainerd, Larry Demers struck again when he became the first driver to win Indy in Top Sportsman presented by Racing RVs.com. In a bizarre twist of fate, Demers did not qualify for the tough 32-car field, but got in as an alternate and made his way to the final where he stopped Belva “Badeye” Brinegar with a perfect 6.752 on his 6.75 dial. Demers also topped national event winner Glenn Butcher and Paul Pittman to make the final round.
