Following his second win of the season, it isn’t much of an exaggeration to suggest that Justin Jenkins is having one of the best years of his career. The Nebraska-based Jenkins has had a tough year at NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series divisional races, but he’s batting .500 at national events with wins in Denver and St. Louis. Jenkins defeated Larry Hodge in the quarterfinals to earn a bye into the money round, where he faced the SAMTech.edu Camaro of Brandon Bakies in Super Stock. First off the starting line with a .015 light, Jenkins rolled the throttle to a 9.561 on his 9.51 dial to cover Bakies’ 9.696 on his 9.66 dial. Jenkins, who was also a runner-up in St. Louis in 2012, turned in his best performance in the second round, where he ran a perfect 9.510 on his 9.51 to stop Darrin Christen.
