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.
