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, here’s 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 didn’t 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 didn’t 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 Gaylen’s car went silent and Wiley was in the Smith Motorsports lane on and off the throttle because he didn’t see Gaylen and the fat lady hadn’t 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.
