TOPMA Schedule: As posted on here - 2013 TOPMA Schedule -- TOPMA, 13:45:54 01/30/13 Wed
Noble, OK race shows to be June 22 on the website it is showing to be on July 20. Please verify. I think with the ProMod / Fuel Altered race in Denton on July 5/6, TXR race on July 12, and then Noble on July 20th is quite busy and could definitely effect car counts at all three. Please let us know which is correct so we can plan accordingly.

I'm trying to set the idle on my Enderle tunnel ram hat on alcohol. I have the blades set at .006 and the leak down at 26%. I can move the barrel valve up or down but it will not go under 2100rpms. What to do?
TOPMA Results - 3/15/13 -- Mrs. TBH, 10:41:03 03/16/13 Sat
After what seemed to be a long winter and a postponed race due to rain there were 10 teams who made their way to Kennedale, America to kick off the 2013 Race Season. With a packed house (standing room only) here's what went down after two rounds of qualifying:
#1 Gaylen Smith - 3.937 at 180 mph (Low ET & Top MPH points)
#2 Steve Wiley - 4.106 at 173 mph
#3 Eddie Roach - 4.413 at 155 mph
#4 Thomas Myers - 4.526 at 131 mph (Welcome back Thomas & Rebecca)
#5 Bob Rankin - 4.894 at 141 mph
#6 Doug Morales - 4.979 at 106 mph
#7 Chuck Poindexter - 5.474 at 148 mph (Best Reaction Time points)
#8 Bob Alexander - 5.853 at 90 mph
#9 Kevin Hargett - 6.335 at 126 mph
#10 Doug Riesterer - 8.769 at 48 mph
Bob Rankin (W) 4.961 at 140 mph (.171 RT)
Doug Riesterer (RU) 8.894 at 70 mph (.110 RT)
Doug's qualifying blues continued as he filled in for Thomas Myers. He couldn't seem to get off the starting line. Bob slowed to a 4.961 at 140 mph but captured his first TOPMA round win.
Eddie Roach (W) 4.433 at 160 mph (.044 RT)
Doug Morales (RU) 5.375 at 90 mph (.115 RT)
Other than a couple of test hits Thursday night this was Doug's first outing with his beautiful new 68 Camaro. He was launching hard but breaking the tires loose at mid track. When this car gets tweeked just right, watch out! Meanwhile Eddie was on a mission to get to the stripe first taking the win.
Gaylen Smith (W) 3.971 at 168 mph (.155 RT)
Bob Alexander (RU) 4.892 at 123 mph (.251 RT)
After suffering a mid-track collision (during his first outing) with the wall last year, Bob returned with a new look to his beautiful 68 Camaro. Bob is basically still getting to know his hot rod but when they get on the same page this is gonna be one fast hot rod. I'm sorry but I have to say that the 2011/2012 champ (Gaylen Smith) was making it look easy last night. The car seemed to like the changes made over the winter. I can't say it was tied to a string, but it was going from A to B taking that round win.
Kevin Hargett (W) 5.101 at 154 mph (.167 RT)
Steve Wiley (RU) NT
Kevin filled in for Chuck Poindexter who could not return after qualifying and got a competition bye run as Steve was not able to make it to the staging lanes in time for his round. After basically rebuilding his transmission, the Tx Grim Reaper was heading to the lanes but his competition was already going down the track.
Eddie Roach (W) 5.055 at 132 mph (.091 RT)
Kevin Hargett (RU) 5.253 at 142 mph (.110 RT)
This was a close peddlefest but it was Eddie coming out on top for the win.
Gaylen Smith (W) 4.605 at 104 mph (.164 RT)
Bob Rankin (RU) NT
Bob's luck ran out after his round 1 victory as he had tranny problems giving Gaylen a competition bye run. Gaylen's numbers down bottom were good but experienced tire shake half track so he clicked it early coasting across the finish line with the win.
Gaylen Smith (W) 4.087 at 162 mph (.125 RT)
Eddie Roach (RU) 5.465 at 97 mph (.060 RT)
Despite Eddie having the holeshot advantage, he couldn't hold off the Texas Bounty Hunter who claimed the first TOPMA victory in the 2013 season. Congratulations to my guys on a job well done!! Congrats to Eddie for his runner-up finish as well.
The weather was crazy during the off season which kept several new cars from getting valuable testing done prior to the season opener but you can bet that in the coming months these guys will find their combinations and come back swinging. It was great being back out at the track hanging with friends. See ya next month!
Its finally here - RACE DAY AT KENNEDALE Time to start those engines & burn some rubber! Good luck to all the teams prayers for safe runs for all. TGR KEEP IT STRAIGHT, BE SAFE & RUN IT FAST. Hate to miss your 1st race of the year but thinking of ya. Luv ya beary much - granny -- granny, 11:48:07 03/15/13 Fri
Tonight's Race is Postponed to next Friday 3/15/13 -- TOPMA, 11:07:27 03/08/13 Fri
Sorry racers & race fans, the weather is a concern right now so the right thing to do is to postpone the season opener until next Friday, March 15, 2013. Gonna have to wait another week to smell that rubber & race fuel.
SEASON OPENER FINALLY HERE - IT'S RACE DAY!!! Time to burn some rubber. Hope everyone has a safe season. TGR run em fast & keep it straight - will be thinking of ya tonight -- granny, 07:42:52 03/08/13 Fri

Annoucing The Pro Mod vs. Fuel Altered Showdown - July 5 & 6 - North Star Dragway -- NSD, 10:40:51 12/31/12 Mon
The time has come, the waiting is over, the money and the bragging rights are on the line, and the baddest outlaws of the southwest are finally going to re-unite their battle as the Texas Outlaw Pro Modifieds will take on the Outlaw Fuel Altereds in a special head to head two day event at North Star Dragway in Denton, Texas on July 5th and 6th.
Almost a decade ago, when a 4.10-4.20 eighth mile pass was good for the top spot, the Texas Outlaw Pro Mods and Outlaw Fuel Altereds lined up side by side at Lone Star Raceway Park in Sealy, Texas. This rivalry ignited a friendly battle between the associations as to who was the baddest outlaw of all. Frankie "The Mad Man" Taylor and his pro mod took home the win in both 2002 and 2003 over Mitch King and Larry Reep in their altereds. Unfortunately, the event did not continue in 2004 and until now, no one was sure if it would ever return.
Gene Nicodemus, owner of North Star Dragway, has stepped up bring the rivalry back to reality. The level of performance these series are now showcasing will bring literally the best of the best to this event in a shootout to see who is the top dog of the southwest outlaw racing scene. This event is in conjunction with the North Star Dragway Anniversary Celebration and 4th of July weekend and will also feature the Southwest Heritage Racing Association (SHRA) as well as Top Gas and Pro Mod Motorcycles, with more feature attractions to be announced.
"TOPMA and OFAA put on a great show and have for years, we are lucky to have such attractions here in our backyard. I want to bring our fans the best show we can possibly have, so we are lining the two top attractions up side by side! It's a show that can be found nowhere else besides North Star Dragway. We are going to allow spectators to camp for free at the track and offer discounted tickets online plus much much more to be announced soon. This will be the first annual Pro Mod vs. Fuel Altered Showdown at NSD every 4th of July weekend to celebrate our anniversary, so mark your calendars now and we'll see you at the show!" said Nicodemus.
Gaylen Smith, President of the Texas Outlaw Pro Modifieds, and the rest of the pro mod field is ready for the challenge to take on Outlaw Fuel Altered President, Bobby Marriott, and the rest of the fuel altered teams. The associations have even come up with terms to describe each other, as the pro mods call the altereds "buggies" and the altereds call the pro mods "slo mods" and say "real racecars don't have doors". All in good fun now, but when they line up against each other it will be for keeps and only the best of the best will survive this showdown.
The event will feature three qualifying sessions (two Friday and one Saturday) and the quickest eight pro mods and quickest eight altereds will qualify for the sixteen car show. All qualifying rounds will be paired with a pro mod against a fuel altered and in the first round of eliminations, the quickest pro mod and the quickest altered will run each other and vice versa down through the eighth qualifying spot.
The two quickest winning pro mods and the two quickest winning fuel altereds from the first round of eliminations will advance to the semi-finals where they will run head to head, pro mod vs. pro mod and altered vs. altered, to ensure a true fuel altered vs. pro mod final round. North Star Dragway is offering free spectator and racer camping and discount tickets online, so bring the camper and the family out for this one folks, you won't want to miss it! For more information and to pre-purchase discounted tickets, visit www.northstardragway.com.

Texas King of the Hill 2013?! -- ChrisNite, 21:45:14 12/13/12 Thu
Working on posting up the audio from lastnights show but lets recap what we LEARNED! (we lost the first half of Bubba's interview due to me hitting the wrong button) BUT Let's recap what he told us lastnight.......
Bubba Corzine talked about the ADRL lastnight and said they are adding a dragster class, running 8 races this year, no Dallas race for 2013 (but they will be in Baytown), NHRA rule set, Introduced Gary Gilland to us as the new ADRL starter and loosely said they werent "worried" about weight in the ADRL (wink wink). Bubba is fired up about the ADRL (as he should be!)
Bubba also revealed the RETURN of the Texas King of the Hill as a nitrous only class with two weights : small block and big block. Look for the KOTH races to be a Friday night deal (once a month) at Texas Raceway. More info to come about KOTH soon!
We thank Bubba for giving us the scoop and taking the time to do the show (and drink all of our Crown black!) ~ Chris Nite 81XRocks.com
Texas VS The World! -- ChrisNite, 21:27:28 12/13/12 Thu
Show recap from talking to Steve Wiley, Gaylen Smith, Jim Brinkerhoff & Batman.
Texas Grim Reaper - Steve Wiley said they were NOT selling his parts to the car, that in fact they were doing some spring cleaning. He revealed that his Sister is his biggest sponsor and he thanks her for her support lol For the fans look for some Texas Grim Reaper merch to be coming soon. Steve is working on the car and looks to return strong in 2013.
Gaylen sat down with us and hit the ground running (one my best interviews in some years!) It has been a long time since Gaylen has been on the live show but he made up for it with some awesome updates for the fans:
First is look for Smith Racing to race MULTIPLE classes in 2013! ADRL, TOPMA, Shannon Morgan's Triple Threat, Texas King of the Hill and X275 (With a side of Grudge in there somewhere too!) Gaylen will be busy in 2013 and boasted for all to hear that he has a car for "that class" lastnight and encourages anyone to call him out on it! Jim Brinkerhoff chimed in with discussion about some lower ET times in TOPMA and lunch with Gaylen & Steve at Hooters on Friday lol
Look for some TOPMA races at a few tracks in 2013 (they are working on the schedule as we speak) Gaylen reminded the TOPMA family about the banquet which is at Mercardo Juarez (S.Arlington) Feb.02 at 7pm
Batman sat down with Gaylen to talk about some grudge racing and as you know Gaylen stepped up to the plate once again and announced he is looking for a Texas VS The World Super Race that will include Pro Mods, 275, Grudge and possibly Outlaw Fuel Altereds. Texas vs The World will be one of the biggest races in the country!
How many of you remember the rivalries between the Texas racers and Florida or Texas vs Oklahoma or Mississippi? Gaylen is serious about this "Super Race" and wanted to Officially Call Out ANYONE who wants to take Texas on and to contact him personally if you are interested.
I talked to Batman about hosting a Grudge only racing show here on 81X Rocks and we are hoping he comes on with us for the 2013 racing season.
I will be posting the interviews up to hear soon but wanted to give everyone a recap as I have had multiple messages on what we talked about on the show. Look for us to do the next live show from the Smith Racing shop coming soon!
Thanks to the Smith Racing crew for coming by :)
