Rockingham or Bust........ -- Mrs. TBH, 13:05:41 09/07/11 Wed
James Dean just pulled out of the parking lot in Mansfield, TX heading to Rockingham, NC to go play with the ADRL boyz. We had a great outing with the car at the BHRA Nationals at Kennedale so we are expecting to pick things up where we left off (hopefully) and improve. The weather conditions look good so we will see what he's capable of. Wish us luck! Brandon, be safe!

Texas Raceway August Results and Photos -- Photos by Toyse, 12:09:13 08/21/11 Sun
It was another record-setting, 107 degrees, Hot Texas Summer Night at Texas Raceway both on and off the track. A Big Texas welcome to Jim Dudley and that sharp-looking Orange Nitrous Camaro who made the pull from Missouri with Jerry Hunt trying to take that Texas Money back. Sixteen Out Law Pro Mods rolled into Texas Raceway and fifteen gave the track their best shot, thank you to Bubba Corzine and Track Crew for a job well done on the track surface. This is how they wound up after two intense filled qualifying session filled with Oil downs, fires, shaken, rattling and lane swapping.

* denotes Supercharged
David Baldwin .075 4.366 @ 160.71 WINNER
Michelle Wilson .060 6.674 @ 76.95
HT set Michelle's 10.5 tire'ed Firebird on Kill because it hiked the front end up and was spitting sparks until it move to close the center line forcing Michelle to lift handing the win to Mr consistent Baldwin 63 Corvette.
Doug Riesterer .043 4.057 @ 176.58 WINNER
Jim Dudley .045 4.499 @ 152.47
We rarely get two ADRL Pro Nitrous car at the same race unfortunately they paired up in the first round. Both cars were stuck together spewing header flames until about three hundred feet when the Mad Scientist, Doug Riesterer, Reher Morrison powered 68 Camaro shot past for the win.
Gaylen Smith .057 3.969 @ 171.34 WINNER
Eddie Roach .010 4.558 @ 158.37
Eddie knew what he had to do when he came up against Gaylen Smith's HelAir, cut a killer reaction time but unfortunately the HelAir ripped and snorted fire to it's fastest elapsed time of the night.
Jerry Hunt 53 Studebaker .175 16.302 @ 31.34
Randall Reid 68 Camaro FOUL -.008 4.121 @ 177.23
I do not really know what happened here all I saw though my tiny world was the rusty stude went up on the trans brake after they both had all the bulbs on, Randall left and Jerry idled up the track.
Doug Riesterer .110 4.080 @ 178.14 WINNER
Jerry Hunt BROKE
Jerry no showed in the lanes so they could not fix what ever was broke.
Mad Scientist Doug Riesterer sailed up the track with both pipes lit.
Gaylen Smith .103 3.973 @ 176.40 WINNER
David Baldwin .090 5.194 @ 95.98
Giant Killer Baldwin who put a light on The Bounty Hunter last month and won was not able to repeat the task and shut off when the HelAir passed him at sixty foot lights to set up an all LenMar final.
Gaylen Smith .090 4.060 183.52 WINNER
Doug Riesterer .031 4.147 177.88
The Bounty Hunter 57 versus the Mad Scientist 68 Camaro, Screw Blown versus Bottle fed, weather and track conditions makes this a pretty evenly matched, last time these two meet Doug was the winner.
Doug had they advantage on the starting line but could not keep hold of the track, pedaling several times, must have been a close race on the top end because the Helair ran the Fastest Mile per Hour of the night, 183.52.
Thank you to all the Fans and Racers that came out in the Heat to Support Texas OutLaw ProMods and Texas Raceway.
We at Taylor Racing are saddened to hear of the passing of Toney Russell. He was the owner of the Lowmad team with Joey Martin. He lost his battle with cancer after 12 years of fighting that horrible disease. Our prayers go out to the Russell family. -- T-Shirt Guy, 08:56:15 08/23/11 Tue

Radical Race Gear -- Chase Huffman, 15:45:58 06/22/11 Wed
I was contacted by Ralph “Butch” Lamb, formerly of Advanced Race Wear and RH2way, in early December 2010 to do design work for his new established crew shirt apparel business, Radical Race Gear. I had previously done design work for him when at Advanced Race Wear, partnership with his ex-wife and ex-father in-law, after his falling out with Brad at RH2.
When contacted again by Butch I laid some guidelines out, how design process and payment would be made. All was good, work flowing greatly, everything going as planned and talked about. That was until April 2011 came around, Butch was “out of town” and could not send payment as originally agreed, and going off good past payments as well as working relationship, I went ahead with design process as requested. I have still yet to be paid on over 8 shirts designs.
Also, during whole process I had subcontracted Butch & Radical Race Gear to print a few shirt orders that I had personally sold. Knowing that he used an overseas printer. I did not like the idea of using another overseas printer after previous experiences with them. I went ahead with the orders, the new printer had showed strong quality control and had contacted me if any problems arose in designs for Butch. I received all 7 orders that I placed, and yet only 1 of the orders were correct to the design proof that was also sent with all artwork. Some orders missing letters, whole words, logo placement and dimensions changed, colors not correct, and sizing off. I was told by Butch that he would contact supplier and get straightened out and get back with me.
I have sent numerous emails, made numerous phone calls and nothing from Butch or anyone at his company. On Monday June 20th we sent another email knowing I would not receive an answer. I finally received an answer via email that same afternoon and was told that I was not going to get paid and that the shirts that were printed wrong were now our problem and since we submitted the art we accepted the shirts. Butch and Radical Race Gear have informed that I would not be paid for all back invoices because I stopped work. Work was halted due to no payment as per our agreement of ½ amount to start design and ½ at customer approval.
I also have been contacted by unhappy customers of Radical Race Gear as well as Advanced Race Wear personally due to the same lack of communication that Butch & Radical Race Gear and Advanced Race Wear (when he was there) have displayed.
This is a warning to not do business with Butch Lamb & Radical Race Gear! Many customers have told me that once they paid him that he would not return phone calls or emails
