  • TOPMA results - May 6, 2017 -- TOPMA, 17:27:14 05/08/17 Mon
    The second of the six race Outlaw series at Texas Motorplex was held last Saturday, May 6 and 20 Pro Mod teams from all over showed up to do battle, Texas style. The weather was perfect which meant the hot rods were happy. Since we had such a high car count, a couple of people stepped up to add money to the purse so we could have a 16 car field. Thank you to Leon Dudley of Charlie’s Plumbing and Randy Shapiro of Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet. We really appreciate it. After two rounds of qualifying, here’s how everything unfolded.

    #1 Steve Wiley – 3.728 at 203 mph
    #2 John Sullivan Jr. – 3.757 at 203 mph
    #3 Bill Doucet – 3.930 at 194 mph
    #4 Jeffrey Cummins – 3.944 at 190 mph
    #5 Jim Brinkerhoff – 3.987 at 187 mph
    #6 Doug Riesterer – 3.996 at 189 mph
    #7 Chad Sheffield – 4.046 at 177 mph
    #8 Tony Strachan – 4.105 at 177 mph
    #9 Gaylen Smith – 4.113 at 162 mph
    #10 Fernando Ayala Jr. – 4.280 at 167 mph
    #11 Kevin Hargett – 4.379 at 141 mph
    #12 Brandon Lewis – 4.417 at 131 mph
    #13 Eric Clark – 4.570 at 140 mph **Best reaction time, qualifying**
    #14 James Satterwhite – 4.601 at 135 mph
    #15 Randy Jock – 4.643 at 154 mph
    #16 Chuck Poindexter – 4.731 at 154 mph
    #17 Richie Price – 4.753 at 151 mph
    #18 Wayne Welch – 4.878 at 139 mph
    #19 Travis Brandt – 5.605 at 84 mph
    #20 Perry Dunn – 6.529 at 75 mph

    First Round:

    John Sullivan Jr (W) 3.675 at 205.60 (.140 RT)
    Randy Jock (RU) 6.502 at 76 mph (.031 RT)

    John Sullivan was on a rail taking the win.

    Bill Doucet (W) 3.899 at 197 mph (.049 RT)
    James Satterwhite (RU) 4.500 at 154 mph (.033 RT)

    The best run of the night for Satterwhite but he couldn’t hold off Doucet’s hard charging hemi in the other lane.

    Chuck Poindexter (W) 4.681 at 153 mph (.035 RT)
    Steve Wiley (RU) 4.781 at 111 mph (.158 RT)

    After not qualifying for last month’s show, Wiley had something to prove and came off the trailer with a 3.72 to qualify #1. This was the biggest upset of the night. Wiley was on and off the throttle trying to get to the finish line first but the “little truck that could” was in the other lane on his best pass so far snatching the win light.

    Jim Brinkerhoff (W) 4.432 at 136 mph (.099 RT)
    Richie Price (RU) 4.733 at 151 mph (.018 RT) **Best reaction time, eliminations**

    Richie filled in for Brandon Lewis who was the qualified car but was unable to make the call. Richie left first but Brinkerhoff had enough on an off-paced pass to take the win.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.840 at 195 mph (.112 RT)
    Tony Strachan (RU) 4.647 at 113 mph (.097 RT)

    Gaylen was trying a new combination in the converter and finally got it to work. Tony had to abort the run.

    Doug Riesterer (W) 3.966 at 185 mph (.072 RT)
    Kevin Hargett (RU) 5.706 at 84 mph (.070 RT)

    Kevin was basically testing his new Camaro during this race. He put together some good runs during qualifying but had to abort the run and Doug was cruising right down his lane taking the win.

    Fernando Ayala Jr. (W) 4.428 at 160 mph (.143 RT)
    Chad Sheffield (RU) 4.945 at 104 mph (.182 mph)

    Another upset with #10 getting the win light over #7. Both cars were on an off-paced run.

    Jeffrey Cummins (W) 3.940 at 192 mph (.043 RT) **Top MPH nitrous**
    Eric Clark (RU) 11.421 at 42 mph (.044 RT)

    Jeffrey on another great run and Eric shook the tires and had to abort.

    Round 2:

    John Sullivan Jr. (W) 3.674 at 206.86 mph (.177 RT) **Best ET and MPH Blown**
    Fernando Ayala Jr (RU) 4.499 at 129 mph (.045 RT)

    The battle of the Jr’s was won by John with the fastest and quickest run of the night in the blown category. Lil Fly had a great light but couldn’t hold off the split window vette.

    Bill Doucet (W) 3.897 at 196 mph (.068 RT)
    Doug Riesterer (RU) 3.943 at 185 mph (.072 RT) **Best ET nitrous**

    Despite having the best ET in the Nitrous category, Riesterer falls to a very consistent Doucet in the blown Willys.

    Jim Brinkerhoff (W) 4.304 at 148 mph (.165 RT)
    Jeffrey Cummins (RU) NT

    The battle of the nitrous cars, in theory #4 and #5 is supposed to be the closest race of the night. Jeffrey jumps the light and throws away a nice run giving the automatic win to Brinkerhoff.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.880 at 193 mph (.095 RT)
    Chuck Poindexter (RU) 4.639 at 155 mph (.032 RT)

    Despite leaving first and running his best time of the night, “the little truck that could” fell to the Texas Bounty Hunter who was on another decent run.

    Semi Finals:

    John Sullivan Jr. (W) 3.857 at 194 mph (.053 RT)
    Bill Doucet (RU) 3.918 at 197 mph (.036 RT)

    This WAS the closest race of the night when you factor in the reaction times. The MOV for John was .044.

    Jim Brinkerhoff (W) 3.977 at 188 mph (.049 RT)
    Gaylen Smith (RU) 4.128 at 150 mph (.110 RT)

    Gaylen was riding the left retaining wall and aborted the run before tagging it and Jim was on another great run.

    Finals:

    John Sullivan Jr. (W) 3.982 at 192 mph (.049 RT)
    Jim Brinkerhoff (RU) 4.082 at 155 mph (.032 RT)

    Both cars burped the throttle a time or two and it was John who won the peddlefest.

    Congratulations to John Sullivan Jr. and his team for their victory and you also got the long distance award driving 8 hours from Macon, TN. We appreciate you coming to run with us and hope to see you again. Congrats also to Jim Brinkerhoff and crew for your runner-up finish. What a night. Lots of plenty fast hot rods. Our next race is June 3rd at Texas Motorplex so y’all come on back!

  • Home Opener Results -- TOPMA, 11:46:38 04/10/17 Mon
    Rain was threatening all around the DFW area with heavy overcast but blue skies were peeking through over the race track. The rain threats didn’t stop 17 Pro Mod teams from attending the Home opener at Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas. After two rounds of qualifying, here’s how everything unfolded:

    #1 Gaylen Smith – 3.787 at 197 mph
    #2 Doug Riesterer – 3.967 at 187 mph
    #3 Bob Gulitti – 4.041 at 178 mph
    #4 Chris Domino – 4.050 at 187 mph
    #5 Tony Strachan – 4.053 at 177 mph
    #6 Clyde Scott – 4.059 at 185 mph
    #7 Eddie Roach – 4.371 at 164 mph
    #8 Bob Alexander – 4.410 at 183 mph
    #9 James Satterwhite – 4.512 at 154 mph
    #10 Brian Heath – 4.546 at 155 mph **Best reaction time qualifying**
    #11 Steve Wiley – 4.655 at 129 mph
    #12 Richie Price – 4.715 at 151 mph
    #13 Eric Clark – 4.735 at 139 mph
    #14 Ryan Jock – 4.821 at 145 mph
    #15 Wayne Welch – 5.883 at 124 mph
    #16 Chuck Poindexter – NT left before tree activated
    #17 Perry Dunn – NT broke at trailer

    First round:

    Tony Strachan (W) 4.063 at 176 mph (.084 RT)
    Chris Domino (RU) NT (.070 RT)

    Shortly after launching, Chris Domino got out of shape and made a hard left turn impacting the right side retaining wall. Chris was okay but the car was not. So very glad you are okay, Domino.

    Clyde Scott (W) 3.815 at 199 mph (.016 RT) *Top MPH Blown**
    Bob Gulitti (RU) 4.029 at 179 mph (.053 RT)

    After sitting out for 8 years building his business, Clyde Scott and the TMW team acted like it was just another day of racing. His lights and performance were dead on. Gulitti made a nice run but just couldn’t hold off the Hemi power of Scott’s 1957 Chevy.

    Doug Riesterer (W) 3.891 at 193 mph (.073 RT)
    Eddie Roach (RU) 4.529 at 160 mph (.065 RT)

    Doug cruised right down Broadway taking the win. Eddie shook and had to lift.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 4.732 at 131 mph (.117 RT)
    Bob Alexander (RU) 9.068 at 66 mph (.001 RT) **Best reaction time eliminations**

    Bob, for a blown car, that was a bad job at red lighting. Seriously, great job on the reaction time. Fortunately for us, Bob smoked the tires at the hit because Gaylen was shaking the tires in his lane.

    Semi Finals:

    Doug Riesterer (W) 3.853 at 192 mph (.105 RT) **Low ET Nitrous**
    Clyde Scott (RU) 3.954 at 194 mph (.015 RT)

    This was a VERY close race. When you factor in the reaction times, this was a .011 MOV.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.857 at 193 mph (.109 RT)
    Tony Strachan (RU) 5.345 at 86 mph (.086 RT)

    Tony got a slight holeshot advantage but had to lift while Gaylen was on a great run in the other lane.

    Finals:

    Doug Riesterer (W) 3.868 at 193 mph (.090 RT) **Top MPH Nitrous**
    Gaylen Smith (RU) 4.162 at 140 mph (.126 RT)

    Doug left first and never looked back. Gaylen’s car stumbled at the hit and then moved over to the center and was shaking so he aborted the run.

    Congratulations to Doug Riesterer and the Mad Scientist crew for their victory and 4 laps in the 3’s. Congrats also to Gaylen Smith and Team TBH for their runner-up finish as well. Happy 2nd Birthday to Harper Reigh!

  • TOPMA Season Opener -- TOPMA, 11:42:46 04/10/17 Mon
    When Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on Feb. 2 and declared 6 more weeks of winter, you didn’t hear the Texas Outlaws complaining. Central Texas has had a very mild winter and 6 more weeks in the 70’s and 80’s would be no problem. Every team was busy over the winter making changes and updates to their programs. For the season opener at San Antonio Raceway, 6 pro mod teams had completed their changes and were ready to rock and roll. After two rounds of qualifying, here’s how everything unfolded:

    #1 Steve Wiley – 3.723 at 201 mph **Low ET & Top MPH Blown**
    #2 Bob Alexander – 3.929 at 186 mph
    #3 Doug Riesterer – 4.018 at 184 mph **Low ET & Top MPH Nitrous**
    #4 Gaylen Smith – 4.232 at 150 mph
    #5 Eric Clark – 4.286 at 131 mph
    #6 Trent Wilson – 4.439 at 162 mph **Best reaction time qualifying**

    First Round:

    Gaylen Smith (W) 4.133 at 140 mph (.144 RT)
    Doug Riesterer (RU) 4.846 at 100 mph (.267 RT)

    After 2nd round qualifying, Gaylen broke the track locator bar on the ’57 and thought they were out. Fortunately, Wiley had a heim joint and Team TBH was able to fix the car and make the call. Thank you TGR. Shortly before half track, he shook the tires but was able to get the win light as Doug was having problems in his lane as well.

    Bob Alexander (W) 3.903 at 188 mph (.0669 RT) **Best reaction time eliminations**
    Eric Clark (RU) 4.281 at 140 mph (.071 RT)

    Bob was on a nice clean lap and Clark Bros. shook the tires.

    Steve Wiley (W) 4.116 at 132 mph (.124 RT)
    Trent Wilson (RU) 4.368 at 154 mph (2.466 RT) *Wake Up Trent*

    Wiley launched, shook and lifted before Trent even left the starting line. Trent made a nice lap but it was a day late.

    Semi Finals:

    Gaylen (W) 4.050 at 173 mph (.069 RT)
    Bob Alexander (RU) 8.105 at 56 mph (.075 RT)

    They say it always runs good just before it blows which was true in our case. We didn’t set a world record or anything but made the best run for us of the night and that didn’t come without a price. When we got down to pick up the car, Gaylen said “Hurry, something’s wrong, I felt a bad vibration”. After inspection, we found that we had dropped a valve and was not able to give Wiley any competition in the final.

    Steve Wiley (W) 7.251 at 74 mph (.133 RT) Bye Run

    Due to only having 6 cars in the show, Wiley got a bye run.

    Finals:

    Steve Wiley (W) 7.605 at 59 mph (.260 RT) Competition Bye
    Gaylen Smith (RU) NT

    Wiley shook the tires and aborted the run since he was on another single.

    Congratulations to Steve Wiley and the TGR team for their victory. Congrats to Team TBH for their runner-up finish as well.

    WE ARE RACING.. HOPE YOU WILL COME PLAY....Racing or not racing.. The uncertainty has stunk, I wish we could have had races and had the payout we've spent in lawyers. We would all be rich.

    Things have changed for the better. Don't believe what you read.

    I don't have all the answers but hope when we post the dates you will come and support us. Let's have a blow out banquet Jan 21 and crazy fun bracket finals team ever.

  • San Antonio Results - October 22, 2016 -- TOPMA, 13:44:28 10/24/16 Mon
    The final race of the 2016 TOPMA series was held at San Antonio Raceway on October 22nd. A few cars were unable to make the show due to breakage at the last Kennedale race but six hot rods showed up and battled it out on the track. For those following the points chase, all Wiley and the TGR team had to do was show up and they pretty much locked down the championship. After first round of qualifying, an exhibition car oiled down the track from about 200 foot all the way down. It was a very lengthy clean-up but the safety of those competing was the tracks main concern and they did a great job. After two rounds of qualifying, heres how everything unfolded:
    #1 Bob Alexander 3.958 at 186 mph
    #2 Doug Riesterer 3.977 at 191 mph
    #3 Eric Clark 4.026 at 190 mph
    #4 Jay Ligon 4.102 at 186 mph
    #5 Steve Wiley 4.800 at 103 mph
    #6 Chuck Poindexter 6.544 at 100 mph
    Gaylen and I were there supporting the organization and the track but we found an unrepairable crack in the block and was unable to bring the Bounty Hunter. Blocks are not usually sitting on the shelf nor are they cheap enough to just go buy one unexpectedly. First race weve missed EVER!!! We are not good spectators. Rant over!
    Chuck Poindexter broke down on the way to the track in Temple and could have given up and turned around and went home but finally made it in time for 2nd round qualifying. Way to hang in there Chuck.
    First Round:
    Steve Wiley (W) 4.429 at 122 mph (.071 RT)
    Doug Riesterer (RU) 5.788 at 97 mph (.047 RT)
    Doug shook the tires and aborted the run while Wiley was getting down his lane a little better capturing the win.
    Bob Alexander (W) 4.027 at 181 mph (.109 RT)
    Chuck Poindexter (RU) 7.367 at 126 mph (.106 RT)
    Both cars reacted almost identically but Chuck spun the tires at the hit and all he could do was watch Bob hook and reel in the win.
    Jay Ligon (W) 5.311 at 106 mph (.353 RT)
    Eric Clark (RU) 4.355 at 129 mph (-.001 RT) Red Light
    Eric left a smidge too soon giving the automatic win to Jay.
    Semi Finals:
    Jay Ligon (W) 4.099 at 184 mph (.290 RT)
    Steve Wiley (RU) 13.031 at 30 mph (.442 RT)
    I think Butch and Eric must have run up and told their drivers to wake-up and go. Jay was on a nice clean run while Wiley shook and rattled and coasted down.
    Bob Alexander (W) No Time (Bye Run)
    Bob was only sporting about 6 cylinders when they were calling them for the round so the crew buttoned it up so he could take the tree and go back to the trailer and fix it correctly. Bob didnt like doing this because we, as a group, are there to put on a show for the fans but sometimes it is necessary. He did not disappoint in the final though.
    Finals:
    Bob Alexander (W) 3.997 at 185 mph (.078 RT)
    Jay Ligon (RU) 6.028 at 98 mph (.417 RT)
    Jay was caught napping again but Bob was ready for the tree and soared down his lane claiming his 4th win of the season.
    Congratulations to Bob Alexander and the entire StripTec team for their hard fought victory but it wasnt quite enough to get around Wiley for the championship, finishing 21 points behind. Congrats also to Jay Ligon for his runner-up finish
    A huge congratulations to Steve Wiley and the TGR team for their fist TOPMA championship! It was well deserved and premeditated. Over the winter, the team stripped the car down to the bare chassis and re-wired it making certain there would be no gremlins this year. They also came back from a devastating encounter with the wall in San Antonio without missing a beat. Im sure the candles were burning from both ends that week. Thats what you call perseverance and dedication and the making of a true champion. Welcome to the club TGR.
    Bob Alexander fought a good fight but came up just shy of his goal for the year and that was to better his standings from last year and claim his first championship. He will definitely be one to watch next year.
    If our car would have been ready, we would have been there trying to protect our #3 spot but it wasnt in the cards for us this year as Eric Clark and the Clark Brothers team snuck by us and claimed that spot. As youve all heard Gaylen say at the banquet, he likes speaking last so we will re-group over the winter and came back next year with a vengeance looking to fight off whomever is in our way. Congratulations to Clark Brothers for their top 3 finish.

  • TXR Results - October 8th -- TOPMA, 17:26:07 10/10/16 Mon
    You couldnt ask for a more perfect day for some fast hot rods in Kennedale, America. This was the final showdown for TOPMA at Texas Raceway in 2016. The points will be wrapped up on October 22 as the Texas Outlaws travel south to San Antonio Raceway. Ten teams showed up to battle it out on the track and heres what went down:

    #1 Gaylen Smith 3.903 at 188 mph **Low ET blown**
    #2 Bob Alexander 3.952 at 193 mph **Top MPH blown** **Best reaction time Qualifying .007**
    #3 Jay Ligon 4.007 at ?? mph
    #4 Steve Wiley 4.069 at 182 mph
    #5 Perry Dunn 4.667 at 126 mph
    #6 Chuck Poindexter 4.693 at 147 mph
    #7 Eric Clark 4.764 at 103 mph
    #8 Eddie Roach 4.830 at 141 mph **Low ET and Top MPH Nitrous**
    #9 EJ Hickl 5.011 at 99 mph
    #10 Rick Cate NT explosion at the hit

    To explain why Jay didnt get credit for his 210 mph, his truck wheelied over the first mph cone activating the timer with the rear tire (or body panel) and then landed and tripped the 2nd mph cone with the front tire giving them a bogus mph speed.

    On to the call-outs, Perry called out Gaylen and they had a date 2nd round qualifying where Perry was going to drag Gaylens ass but as you can tell from the results below, One and Dunn was unable to make the call and forfeited his call out. I personally think the 3.90 off the trailer scared him but what do I know!!

    First Round:

    Steve Wiley (W) 5.238 at 92 mph (.077 RT)
    EJ Hickl (RU) 6.865 at 82 mph (.070 RT)

    This was an ugly race on the track and on paper. EJ fills in for Perry who broke transmission during first round of qualifying. Wiley peddles his way to the victory.

    Eric Clark (W) 4.141 at 145 mph (.143 RT)
    Bob Alexander (RU) 24.610 at ?? mph (.136 RT)

    Bob breaks a blower belt and Eric cruises on to the win. Bob really needed to win this round if he had any hopes of catching Wiley in the points.

    Chuck Poindexter (W) 9.250 at 47 mph (.035 RT) **Best reaction time Eliminations**
    Jay Ligon (RU) NT

    Jay was unable to fire the Army Truck in the staging lanes giving the automatic win to Chuck.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.962 at 178 mph (.214 RT)
    Eddie Roach (RU) 5.774 at 84 mph (.088 RT)

    Eddie left first but it was Gaylen capturing the win with another impressive run.

    Semi-Finals:

    Steve Wiley (W) NT (.819 RT)
    Gaylen Smith (RU) NT

    Gaylen did his burnout and there was fluid leaking on the track so he was shut off, giving Wiley the automatic win and he took the beam and backed off.

    Eric Clark (W) NT (1.912 RT)
    Chuck Poindexter (RU)

    Chuck broke the input shaft during first round and was unable to come back up giving Eric a competition bye run into the finals. Eric was getting ready to make a solo run but the crew noticed a broke hiem joint when setting the wheelie bars so Eric just took the beam and backed out.

    Finals:

    Steve Wiley (W) 4.112 at 156 mph (.044 RT)
    Eric Clark (RU) 12.430 at no mph (.063 RT)

    Eric broke something in the blower and Wiley peddled his way for the win.

    Congratulations to Steve Wiley and the TGR team for their victory. Congrats also to Eric Clark and the Clark Bros. team for their runner-up finish.

    Since we do not calculate the bonus points into the last race of the season, we can figure the different scenarios ahead of time and it is highly unlikely that Bob will catch Steve in the points chase. The only scenario where Bob might have a chance is if Wiley doesnt show up in San Antonio and we all the chances of that happening.

  • TXR Results - September 10, 2016 -- TOPMA, 17:00:48 09/12/16 Mon
    All week leading up to race day, the weather forecasters were calling for up to 80% chance of rain. Mother Nature showed that once again, she is a drag racing fan because not a drop of rain or threatening weather was in our area. After two rounds of qualifying, heres how everything unfolded:

    #1 Gaylen Smith 3.992 at 179 mph **Low ET Blown/Turbo**
    #2 Steve Wiley 3.994 at 184 mph
    #3 Doug Riesterer 4.046 at 185 mph **Low ET and Top MPH Nitrous**
    #4 Jay Ligon 4.047 at 186 mph
    #5 Bob Alexander 4.080 at 187 mph
    #6 Rodney Parks 4.090 at ?? mph
    #7 Perry Dunn 4.152 at 180 mph
    #8 David Baldwin 4.261 at 173 mph
    #9 Eddie Roach 5.232 at 94 mph
    #10 Eric Clark 5.871 at 83 mph **Best Reaction Time Qualifying**
    #11 Chuck Poindexter 6.019 at 127 mph
    #12 Chad Green 8.307 at 51 mph
    #13 Wayne Welch 8.883 at 58 mph

    First Round:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.022 at 190 mph (.070 RT) **Top MPH Blown/Turbo**
    Jay Ligon (RU) 4.081 at 179 mph (.118 RT)

    This was a good race. Both cars making nice runs!

    Rodney Parks (W) 4.155 at 182 mph (.051 RT)
    Doug Riesterer (RU) 5.054 at 99 mph (.055 RT)

    Congratulations to Rodney Parks and their entire team. After switching from nitrous to blown, it hasnt been easy but it looks like you guys have things figured out now. Doug got out of shape and aborted the run.

    Steve Wiley (W) No Time Competition bye (.820 RT)
    Perry Dunn (RU) No Time

    Steve fired up and rounded the corner but the car was smoking like a freight train. Perry Dunn fired up in the staging lanes but the car would not go in gear. Wiley shuts his off and takes it back to the trailer to see if he can fix it before next round.

    David Baldwin (W) 4.526 at 134 mph (.085 RT)
    Gaylen Smith (RU) 4.818 at 103 mph (.174 RT)

    Neither car had an impressive run but it was Baldwin coming away with the victory. Gaylens Texas Bounty Hunter jumped out of gear about half track and he coasted to the finish line.

    Semi Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.036 at 184 mph (.102 RT)
    David Baldwin (RU) 4.809 at 114 mph (.125 RT)

    Bob was on another consistent run and gets the win. Baldwin having troubles.

    Steve Wiley (W) 4.205 at 135 mph (.032 RT)
    Rodney Parks (RU) 12.101 at 50 mph (.096 RT)

    Wiley gets the costly win as he blows the blower off of his car. When he passed the trailer, the blower was sitting sideways on top of the motor. Rodney had his own troubles early on so it was Wiley getting the win.

    Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 9.194 at 53 mph (.028 RT) **Best reaction time eliminations**
    Steve Wiley (RU) No Time

    Well obviously Wiley wasnt able to fix the blower problem so Bob made a solo run and he had issues getting down track but it didnt matter because he was the winner due to a competition bye.

    Congratulations once again to Bob and the entire Team Bob crew on a job well done. Consistency pays off once again. Congrats to Steve Wiley and the TGR team as well for their runner-up finish despite having issues first round.

    If you missed this race, you missed a good one. There were 9 different classes for all kinds of car enthusiasts. The Pro Mod/Renegade race originally scheduled for August 13 was rain delayed to August 27 which meant we ran our classes along with the Southwest Heritage Racing Association (SHRA). Mother Nature was a drag racing fan and that was evident by the very nice weather we had. After two rounds of qualifying in our series, heres how everything unfolded.

    #1 Steve Wiley 3.921 at 182 mph **Low ET Blown**
    #2 Gaylen Smith 3.932 at 190 mph **Top MPH Blown**
    #3 Bob Alexander 4.104 at 187 mph
    #4 Eric Clark 4.145 at 157 mph **Best reaction time qualifying .004)
    #5 Chad Green 4.212 at 172 mph **Low ET Nitrous**
    #6 David Baldwin 4.275 at 173 mph **Top MPH Nitrous**
    #7 Eddie Roach 4.547 at 165 mph
    #8 Wayne Welch 4.743 at 156 mph
    #9 Chuck Poindexter 4.789 at 156 mph
    #10 Spencer Johnson 5.172 at 130 mph
    #11 James Satterwhite NT
    #12 Perry Dunn NT

    First Round:

    Steve Wiley (W) 4.549 at 110 mph (.070 RT)
    Wayne Welch (RU) 4.709 at 154 mph (.044 RT)

    Wiley looked like he ran a quarter mile in his 1/8 lane but still captures the win.

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.122 at 187 mph (.029 RT)
    David Baldwin (RU) 10.490 at 39 mph (.042 RT)

    David Baldwin shook the tires and coasted down track but Bob was on another consistent run and takes the win.

    Eric Clark (W) 4.356 at 150 mph (.076 RT)
    Chad Green (RU) 4.933 at 108 mph (.067 RT)

    Chad had a slight starting line advantage and was all over the track but Eric Clark powered by for the win.

    Eddie Roach (W) 4.322 at 166 mph (.017 RT)
    Gaylen Smith (RU) 4.635 at 108 mph (.212 RT)

    Eddie had a holeshot advantage but Gaylen was making up ground when the transmission jumped outta gear and Eddie got the win.

    Semi-Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.203 at 158 mph (.047 RT)
    Eddie Roach (RU) 4.421 at 169 mph (.026 RT)

    Eric Clark (W) 7.709 at 57 mph (.006 RT) **Best Reaction time Eliminations**
    Steve Wiley (RU) 4.421 at 128 mph (.031 RT)

    Steve should have been the winner of this race based on the numbers but he got way out of shape and crossed the center line giving the automatic win to Eric.

    Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.122 at 187 mph (.039 RT)
    Eric Clark (RU) 5.428 at 89 mph (.034 RT)

    Bob on another consistent run and consistency wins races. Congratulations to Team Pro Mod Bob for their victory and to Eric Clark and the Clark Bros. Team for their runner-up finish as well.

    Our hearts go out to the Ron Muncey family for their tragic loss. I didnt know Ron personally but I had definitely heard of him. R.I.P. Mr. Muncey.

  • TXR Results - July 23rd -- TOPMA, 10:13:18 07/25/16 Mon
    On a VERY hot July afternoon, thirteen Pro Mod teams from all over braved the unbearable temperatures and invaded Texas Raceway in Kennedale, America. Around 4:00 the water trucks were brought in to cool the 155 degree track temperature down to hopefully make it more manageable on the tuners and drivers to navigate their way down the 1/8 mile. First round qualifying started about 7:30 and after two rounds of qualifying, heres how everything unfolded.

    #1 Jay Ligon 4.089 at 185 mph
    #2 Brandon Lewis 4.138 at 157 mph
    #3 Bob Alexander 4.151 at 186 mph (Top MPH Blown)
    #4 Eric Clark 4.250 at 142 mph
    #5 David Baldwin 4.268 at 173 mph (Top MPH Nitrous)
    #6 Gaylen Smith 4.349 at 129 mph
    #7 Jeff Naiser 4.423 at 143 mph
    #8 Steve Wiley 4.453 at 122 mph
    #9 Wayne Welch 4.740 at 152 mph
    #10 Chuck Poindexter 4.853 at 156 mph (Best reaction time, Qualifying)
    #11 Eddie Roach 8.156 at 54 mph
    #12 Marc McClaskey 13.791 at ?? MPH
    #13 Bobby Booth NT

    Unfortunately Marc McClaskey got in his own water and ended up impacted the wall ending his night (and maybe the rest of the season). Marc was okay (thankfully) but the Angry Bird looked pretty angry.

    Welcome back Bobby Booth! I know you didnt get to make a pass but we were glad to see you dusted off the beautiful ole hot rod and brought her out again! Hopefully well see more of you this season!

    First Round:

    Eric Clark (W) 5.375 at 84 mph (.032 RT)
    David Baldwin (RU) 4.288 at 172 mph (-.086 RT) Red Light

    Not sure if Eric saw his win light on and lifted or if he didnt make it down the track under power but either way, it was win for the Clark Bros. team.

    Jay Ligon (W) 4.071 at 179 mph (.017 RT)
    Steve Wiley (RU) 4.335 at 130 mph (.016 RT) Best reaction time, Eliminations)

    Wileys numbers were better all the way down track until the blower popped but when it mattered most, Jay Ligons numbers were good enough for the win.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.992 at 177 mph (.090 RT) (Low ET Blown)
    Bob Alexander (RU) 4.149 at 185 mph (.078 RT)

    This was a close race. Gaylen moved over towards the wall but was able to power through for the win. Im not gonna lie, after the struggles weve experienced pretty much all year, this felt like a huge win for us. We were on a nice lap second round qualifying but then shortly after half track we spit the top pulley off.

    Jeff Naiser (W) 5.442 at 89 mph (-.005 RT)
    Brandon Lewis (RU) 6.503 at 76 mph (-.278 RT)

    It looked like Naiser was going to get a competition bye run but then Brandon gets his Blown 57 fired up in time to make the call only to end his night with a red light. Naiser would have been red as well, but the first or worst rule came into play.

    Semi-Finals:

    Jay Ligon (W) 4.031 at 183 mph (.076 RT)
    Eric Clark (RU) 4.125 at 174 mph (.051 RT)

    Eric had a slight holeshot advantage but was unable to hold off the hard charging Army Truck. Another great side by side race.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 4.060 at 178 mph (.094 RT)
    Jeff Naiser (RU) 4.227 at 170 mph (.018 RT)

    Another great side by side race with Smith getting to the stripe first.

    Finals:

    Jay Ligon (W) 4.052 at 183 mph (.122 RT)
    Gaylen Smith (RU) 13.530 at No mph (.065 RT)

    Gaylen got the jump but as soon as he hit the loud peddle, the top pulley came off again and looked like a game of ping pong bouncing off the front end and inner wall. Ligon was on another consistent run and claims his first TOPMA victory!

    Congratulations to Jay Ligon and the entire U.S. Army Truck team for their well deserved first victory and also to Gaylen Smith and the Texas Bounty Hunter team for their hard fought runner-up finish as well. See yall at the track in a couple of weeks on August 13th. Lets everyone put in an order for some cooler temps in August (I can dream, cant I?)

  • TXR Results - May 13th -- TOPMA, 13:19:34 05/17/16 Tue
    Friday the 13th brought out 16 Pro Mod teams to try and knock the Texas Grim Reaper from the top spot but would this night be just what the Reaper needed? A full moon at that. After two rounds of qualifying, heres how everything unfolded.

    #1 Doug The Mad Scientist Riesterer 3.977 at 186 mph
    #2 Steve Texas Grim Reaper Wiley 4.003 at 194 mph
    #3 Bob Team Bob Alexander 4.021 at 193 mph
    #4 Eric Clark Bros. Clark 4.043 at 191 mph
    #5 Gaylen Texas Bounty Hunter Smith 4.111 at 176 mph
    #6 Spencer Cornbread Johnson 4.351 at 170 mph
    #7 Marc The Boss McClaskey 4.406 at 170 mph
    #8 Doug Morales 4.450 at 174 mph
    #9 David Baldwin 4.503 at 163 mph
    #10 Harry Macho Man Crane 4.616 at 138 mph
    #11 Brian Heath 4.734 at 145 mph
    #12 Kevin Hargett 5.009 at 168 mph
    #13 Wayne Welch 5.055 at 157 mph
    #14 Rodney Parks 5.177 at 145 mph
    #15 Chuck Luvamaro Poindexter 5.218 at 157 mph *Best Reaction Time Qualifying .015*
    #16 Perry Dunn - NT

    First Round:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.190 at 156 mph (.025 RT)
    Spencer Johnson (RU) 5.725 at 102 mph (.081 RT)

    Bob was on a great run and then the parachute came out shortly after half track. Spencer had his own issues in the Smith Motorsports lane.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.910 at 183 mph (.077 RT)
    Eric Clark (RU) 4.745 at 114 mph (.020 RT)

    Eric left first but encountered tire shake and lifted, meanwhile, Gaylen was making a nice clean run for the win.

    Steve Wiley (W) 3.896 at 198 mph (.118 RT)
    Marc McClaskey (RU) 7.373 at 87 mph (.625 RT) Wake up Marc!

    Not sure what happened here but clearly Wiley was on a great run.

    Doug Riesterer (W) 3.905 at 188 mph (.084 RT) *Low ET Nitrous*
    Harry Crane (RU) 13.009 at 58 mph (1.140 RT)

    Again, not sure what happened but it didnt much matter with the run Doug laid down. Harry Crane filled in for Doug Morales.

    Semi Finals:

    Steve Wiley (W) 3.894 at 199 mph (.065 RT) *Low ET & Top MPH Blown*
    Bob Alexander (RU) 7.323 at 61 mph (.000 RT) *Best Reaction Time Eliminations*

    It was over when Steve hit the skinny pedal. Bob did a bad job of red lighting (a perfect light).

    Doug Riesterer (W) 3.934 at 190 mph (.137 RT) *Top MPH Nitrous*
    Gaylen Smith (RU) 4.033 at 165 mph (.081 RT)

    Gaylen was out on Doug and he felt a vibration so he lifted and Doug was right there to snatch the win away.

    Finals:

    Steve Wiley (W) 4.824 at 114 mph (.068 RT)
    Doug Riesterer (RU) 9.399 at ?? mph (.059 RT)

    Dougs car had a nitrous backfire at the hit and Steve was on and off the throttle claiming the win.

    Congrats to Steve Wiley and the entire TGR team for their well deserved victory on Friday the 13th. Congrats to Doug Riesterer for his runner-up finish as well. The TGR team also thanked everyone who bought a raffle ticket or a bake sale item or simply just donated to the Jaxon Anthony Foundation. The goodies were yummy! I had a few different items myself.

  • TOPMA - Texas Raceway Results - April 23, 2016 -- TOPMA, 16:14:37 04/25/16 Mon
    After weeks of rain and floods, the clouds finally parted and Mother Nature allowed us to run our re-scheduled race from April 9th. There was every kind of car you could possibly imagine on the property as there were 6 different classes being run that night. There was something for everybody. After two rounds of qualifying in the Pro Mod class, heres what went down.

    #1 Steve Wiley 3.900 at 200.53 mph
    #2 Gaylen Smith 3.923 at 189 mph
    #3 Eric Clark 4.119 at 183 mph
    #4 Kevin Hargett 4.475 at 174 mph
    #5 Marc McClaskey 4.506 at 163 mph **Low ET & Top MPH Nitrous & Best reaction time in qualifying (.020)**
    #6 David Baldwin 4.506 at 156 mph
    #7 Chuck Poindexter 4.676 at 160 mph
    #8 Wayne Welch 4.926 at 156 mph
    #9 Bob Alexander 5.166 at 137 mph
    #10 Spencer Johnson 5.324 at 110 mph
    #11 James Satterwhite NT (Broke in burnout)
    #12 Perry Dunn NT (Broke at trailer)

    First Round:

    Steve Wiley (W) 3.856 at 201.79 mph (.035 RT) **Low ET & Top MPH Blown/Turbo**
    Wayne Welch (RU) 9.166 at 47 mph (.005 RT) **Best reaction time eliminations**

    Wayne left first but Wiley had caught him by the 10 foot mark. Wayne encountered traction problems and Wiley cruised down the Smith Motorsports lane for Low ET and Top Mph.

    Kevin Hargett (W) 6.396 at 72 mph (.061 RT)
    Marc McClaskey (RU) 5.045 at 143 mph (-.007 RT) Red Light

    I didnt see this race but heard it was ugly. Kevin breaks the wishbone in the car and it was out of control. McClaskey red lights handing the win to Kevin.

    Eric Clark (W) 3.970 at 191 mph (.030 RT)
    David Baldwin (RU) 5.814 at 82 mph (.039 RT)

    Clark Brothers makes a nice A to B pass for the win.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.899 at 190 mph (.121 RT)
    Chuck Poindexter (RU) 4.697 at 159 mph (-.036 RT) Red Light

    Chuck gives it up on the starting line but it didnt much matter. Gaylen was tied to a string in the Painless lane and gets the win.

    Semi-Finals:

    Steve Wiley (W) 3.882 at 199 mph (.070 RT) **Competition bye**
    Kevin Hargett (RU) NT

    Kevin was unable to make the call due to breaking the wishbone in the round before giving Wiley a free pass to the final (as if he needed it).

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.866 at 191 mph (.065 RT)
    Eric Clark (RU) 5.283 at 94 mph (.051 RT)

    Eric gets away with a slight advantage but the Bounty Hunter streaks by for the win and his best run of the night.

    Finals:

    Steve Wiley (W) 4.878 at 131 mph (.024 RT)
    Gaylen Smith (RU) 17.40 AT 20 mph (.055 RT)

    Both cars shot of the gate like they stole something but then Gaylens car went silent and Wiley was in the Smith Motorsports lane on and off the throttle because he didnt see Gaylen and the fat lady hadnt sang yet. Later found out that the crank trigger wheel and bottom blower pulley broke is why the Bounty Hunter went silent.

    Congratulations to Steve Wiley and the TGR team for their victory and also to Gaylen Smith and Team TBH for their runner-up finish as well. Both cars looked great all night.

  • TOPMA results - March 26, 2016 -- TOPMA, 16:31:30 04/04/16 Mon
    After what seemed to be an eternal winter break, and then a rain delay, the season opener of the Texas Outlaw Pro Mods finally happened. Fifteen teams came out of hibernation ready to get a new year started. After two rounds of qualifying, heres how everything unfolded.

    #1 Steve Wiley 3.837 at 198.00 mph
    #2 Bob Alexander 3.993 at 193 mph
    #3 Gaylen Smith 4.106 at 150 mph
    #4 Perry Dunn 4.220 at 188 mph
    #5 Jay Ligon 4.240 at 169 mph
    #6 James Satterwhite 4.268 at 177 mph **Low ET & Top MPH nitrous**
    #7 Kevin Hargett 4.336 at 175 mph
    #8 David Baldwin 4.503 at 162 mph
    #9 Marc McClaskey 4.504 at 163 mph
    #10 Eric Clark 4.794 at 149 mph
    #11 Wayne Welch 4.797 at 160 mph
    #12 Chuck Poindexter 4.894 at 150 mph **Best Reaction time qualifying** (.004 RT)
    #13 Alfred Whiteside 5.112 at 132 mph
    #14 Rodney Parks 5.569 at 113 mph
    #15 Eddie Roach 6.686 at 68 mph

    First round:

    Steve Wiley (W) 3.836 at 197 mph (.071 RT) **Low ET Blown**
    David Baldwin (RU) 6.510 at 74 mph (.066 RT)

    Wiley came out of the trailer with something to prove. Baldwin was unable to get a big enough jump on him at the light and it was all over shortly after launch.

    Jay Ligon (W) 8.932 at 50 mph (1.11 RT) Competition bye
    Perry Dunn (RU) N/T

    Perry Dunn did his burnout and kept going giving the Army Truck a competition bye into the semis.

    James Satterwhite (W) 4.300 at 170 mph (.165 RT)
    Marc McClaskey (RU) 6.764 at 87 mph (.202 RT)

    Marc was first alternate and he filled in for Gaylen Smith who broke the rear-end in 2nd round qualifying. Neither driver looked like they were in a hurry to leave but James did get the headstart and kept it all the way down track claiming the round win.

    Bob Alexander (W) 3.989 at 194 mph (.076 RT)
    Kevin Hargett (RU) 4.446 at 173 mph (.104 RT)

    Team Bob also came out of the trailer looking like they had unfinished business to take care of. Alexanders car was tied to a string all night. Hargett was on an off-paced run and couldnt hold off the hard charging Team Bob Chevy Camaro in the other lane.

    Semi-Finals:

    Steve Wiley (W) 3.991 at 157 mph (.071 RT)
    Jay Ligon (RU) 5.319 at 113 mph (.033 RT)

    Wiley overcomes a starting line disadvantage to take the win.

    Bob Alexander (W) 3.971 at 195 mph (.059 RT) Competition bye
    James Satterwhite (RU) N/T

    James burnt a piston first round and was unable to make the call. Team Bob made another nice run.

    Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 3.935 at 198 mph (.026 RT) **Best Reaction time eliminations**
    Steve Wiley (RU) 3.945 at 198.38 mph (-.157 RT) **Foul**/**Top MPH Blown**

    This was the race of the night. It doesnt get much better than this (for Bob). Looking good Bob!!! Congratulations to Team Bob for their win and also to Steve Wiley and Team TGR for their runner-up finish as well.

    Steve, you don't realize it but Gaylen just made you look like the biggest idiot in drag racing history. If you had any self respect at all you would swallow your pride and acknowledge that TBH is the true winner here.

    Gaylen, if I were you I would tread carefully from here on out with your willingness to change rules, Steve might ask for the wiggle at next years races and expect the starting line procedures be changed. Your the true people's champion (insert Rocky music in the background here) and your fans know this.

    HUGE news on the show tonite from Gaylen Smith ....
    Gaylen announced he vetoed the rule to drop two races from the TOPMA points championship. which puts Steve Wiley in the points lead. I will replay the show tomorrow at High Noon if you missed it but OFFICIALLY Steve Wiley & The Texas Grim Reaper Team are the TOPMA Points Champs for the 2015 Season!

    Final points standing (due to the rule change)
    Steve - 464
    Bob - 463
    Gaylen - 458

    Gaylen has in the past given me exclusive news and info I am beyond humble and honored to be apart of the Texas Drag Racing Family. What a show! Wow

  • October FINAL Results -- Mrs. TBH, 10:37:16 10/12/15 Mon
    It all comes down to this night. Coming into this race, the top three cars are only separated by 17 points. Steve Wiley and the Texas Grim Reaper sitting on top with 416 points, then Bob Alexander with 403 and Gaylen Smith in the Texas Bounty Hunter was in 3rd with 399 points. Back to a Friday night, twelve teams showed up to finalize the top 8 in points and heres how everything unfolded after two rounds of qualifying. Remember, bonus points are very critical at this point.

    #1 Bob Alexander 3.979 at 184 mph **Best reaction time** (.002 RT)
    #2 Steve Wiley 4.124 at 165 mph
    #3 Gaylen Smith 4.170 at 137 mph
    #4 David Baldwin 4.325 at 168 mph
    #5 Kevin Hargett 4.378 at 179 mph
    #6 Doug Riesterer 4.550 at 118 mph
    #7 James Satterwhite 4.618 at 134 mph
    #8 Eddie Roach 4.796 at 122 mph
    #9 Alfred Whiteside 6.628 at 73 mph
    #10 Jay Ligon 7.485 at 93 mph
    #11 Perry Dunn No Time
    #12 Chuck Poindexter No Time

    First Round:

    Bob Alexander (W) 4.005 at 183 mph (.054 RT)
    Eddie Roach (RU) 16.677 at 38 mph (.298 RT)

    Not sure what happened to Eddie but Bob had the eye of the tiger! He was focused on the prize!

    Steve Wiley (W) 3.899 at 195 mph (.007 RT) **Low ET and Top MPH**
    James Satterwhite (RU) 4.431 at 157 mph (.175 RT)

    Wiley left first and never looked back. He also had his game face on

    Kevin Hargett (W) 4.285 at 189 mph (.743 RT)
    David Baldwin (RU) NT

    Baldwin encountered problems and didnt make the run so Kevin gets a competition bye into the semis with a nice run!

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.952 at 189 mph (.150 RT)
    Doug Riesterer (RU) 4.084 at 159 mph (.087 RT)

    Neither car made great runs during qualifying but both seemed to have figured it out on this run with Gaylen taking the win.

    Semi-Finals:

    Bob Alexander (W) 3.998 at 185 mph (.076 RT)
    Kevin Hargett (RU) 4.309 at 176 mph (.129 RT)

    Bob still had his game face on and makes another stellar run landing him in the finals. Who will be his competition between Gaylen and Wiley? According to the stands, it would be Wiley.

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.967 at 183 mph (.029 RT)
    Steve Wiley (RU) 4.148 at 175 mph (.011 RT)

    According to the scoreboard, it was Gaylen Smith meeting up with Bob in the finals!

    Finals:

    Gaylen Smith (W) 3.940 at 190 mph (.084 RT)
    Bob Alexander (RU) 8.671 at 59 mph (.056 RT)

    Bob was going for the win and had it stepped up a little too much and got crossed up shortly after launch and Gaylen streaked by for the win.

    At the beginning of the year, posted on our schedule, we implemented a 2 race waive rule which means ALL drivers have to drop their two worst races. After adding in bonus points for perfect attendance and waiving 2 races, Gaylen Smith and Team TBH came out on top for another championship, their 5th in a row and 7th overall since the inception of TOPMA. Congratulations to Team TBH and Gaylen Smith for the race win and the overall TOPMA championship. All the overnight parts earlier in the year paid off.

    Congratulations to Bob Alexander and the Striptec Team for the runner-up on the track and also for finishing #2 in the overall points.

    Congratulations also go out to Steve Wiley and the Texas Grim Reaper Team for winning the Texas Raceway championship.

    Congratulations to David Baldwin for winning the Nitrous Championship and James Satterwhite for the runner-up!

    Thanks to Cindi and Dave and the entire staff of Texas Raceway for a great track and support all year long.

    Amazing season full of ups & downs for everyone. No one team dominated and that made for an exciting last race, last round finish. Thanks to all the TOPMA racers, their families, and crews for making 2015 so great.
    Special appreciation to Cindy and the whole staff at Texas Raceway for continuing to support TOPMA.

  • Ok folks, the time is near. Tomorrow night, Friday October 9th at Texas Raceway in Kennedale, TX. The final TOPMA race of the year. With low ET bonus, top MPH bonus, and best RT bonus, along with perfect attendance bonus points available, and the 2 race points waiver, it has all boiled down to less than one round separating the top 3. Steve, Gaylen, and Bob all have a shot at the TOPMA points championship and the Texas Raceway promod points championship. This is a race you wont want to miss. Qualifying starts at 7pm. Be there! -- Eric (TGR) - Slap Happy Pappy, 12:13:51 10/08/15 Thu
