The 2014 Bakersfield March meet is taking place March 6 – 9 in Bakersfield, California and it’s going to be a weekend filled with exciting drag racing.
Jim Murphy will be chasing his record setting 5th March Meet title, piloting the front engine dragster that has won the last two March Meets. Jason Rupert, who dominated the NHRA Heritage Funny Car category last year, is rumored to be entering two Funny Cars in this year’s event. We might be seeing the “Black Plague” and the “Merritt Littlefield” campaigning under the Rupert flag.
The top 8 points earners from the 2013 Boise-Bakersfield Blitz will compete in a special 8 car shootout during funny car qualifying on Friday & Saturday with the winner receiving a $3,000 bonus.
